Who has taken Prozac and liked it. Does it give you energy, any problem with sleeping, sex ? Did it help your mood and make you get out and do more?
Hi D C 2013 YES i have taken Prozac it is in a special group called SSRI'S which are alot better than the old ones and yes it can do all of the above you asked about and as far as side effects everyone is different just because the prozac worked a long time for me does not mean the same for you and the same with the side effects lots of them disapear after you have been on it awhile it does take about 4 weeks to get the full benifit of the medication time to build up in your system depends on the dr.but some of the side effects that don't go away they can give you something to help with that life can be better but you have to be willing to try.There are so many people with this condition and prozac is a good starter sadly they can not just hit the right medication on the first try you may have to try others but believe me it is well worth it to feel normal again many of us end up taking more than one medication to help us with this conditions keep your chin up and think ...
positive,helps alot day to day but if you don't do something you well still be in this place or worse later trust me..Chuck1957 retired Pharmacy Technician Cpht pdx oregon.
Yes, I've taken Prozac, for a number if years actually, it was the first med for depression that I tried. As I recall it worked very well for me without side affects, only a few vivid dreams early on but they went away. I quit taking antidepressants (big mistake) and when I got back on them doc offered Effexor for some reason, or I'd probably still be on it.
Hi Prozac was also my first medication and I took it for years and felt
great. It did get to a point where it stopped working for me and I had to
go on different meds. I was in a bad way and the Prozac was a life saver.
It doesn't work over night, takes 4-6 weeks to kick in. We all react different, hope this works for you.
