I’ve been on fluoxetine 20mg for 5 weeks now and have been experiencing dilated pupils ever since... it’s bothering me ... will this go away? Should I be worried? It’s only 20 mg so it’s not a big dose but idk I look weird... I feel weird and it’s been 5 weeks... help... lol
These symptoms are called mydriasis and hyperhidrosis and are side effects when starting Prozac (and many other antidepressants):
"Common (1% to 10%): Sweating/hyperhidrosis"
"Uncommon (0.1% to 1%): Dry eyes, mydriasis, photophobia"
They generally resolve in just a few days to a week or two so you should talk to your health care provider for professional advice. Perhaps a temporary dosage adjustment might help your metabolism adjust to the medication more smoothly.
