... effective for sleep? I suffer insomnia
Its not really effective for sleep. That tiredness you had yesterday is a side effect that will go away as you get used to it.
Prozac it's not really known for causing drowsiness, but everyone is different. I would give it another try maybe you were just tired. If it still makes you sleepy call your doc and ask what he thinks. When I tried taking it in the evening I had some very strange dreams.
It wasn't for me, in fact it made my sleep disruptive. Also, please be aware a minimum of 7-10 days should go by before you get the benefit of this med at this dose. Keep your Dr in the loop.
I've been taking Prozac off n on for over 20 years n I've always taken it in the daytime. And at the beginning it can give U more memorable dreams, nothing truly awful or scary. Maybe strange n out of the blue,but still in the normal range. It eventually subsides or becomes tolerable if it was or is a problem. For me it hasn't been,but it is different for each of Us. What works for One might not work for another. There are side affects to most all antidepressants! When n if you do experience these side affects that usually don't last anywhere between a few days to a couple of weeks,sometimes a little longer. If the problems U r having are severe and or last longer,you immediately contact your doctor. He will either change your dose or change your prescription/medicine. Don't worry so much about the negative you hear/read. There is a lot of good information too. Good luck & god bless ~ p.s. keep Us updated ?
Hi, the tiredness should subside once you get used to the medication... there are several potential side effect symptoms when starting Prozac, it takes about 4 weeks (give or take) to settle with an SSRI, so give it some time. Hopefully the tiredness will subside quickly
