I was prescribed Prozac for depression today. I'm scared to take it. Should I be?

If you need this medication, no need to be scared. You may experience some side effects when first starting this medication. Don't let this alarm you, they generally subside with continued use. It will take upwards of a month to reach therapeutic levels so be patient. Prozac has been around along time and has a decent track record so give it a try and hope it works for you.

Tell your Dr you're afraid to follow his instructions and go from there.
