I was on prozac for many years and really liked it. I didn't have any side effects besides a slight decrease in sex drive. Remember that each person has different results with these meds, so you may or may not experience these side effects as well.
SSRI for me is like asking if I want to suffer psychosis. I honestly believe that they are so popular the risks aren't Considered. I had a very bad bout with them so have many of my friends. I would just say be cautious.
Besides a little decrease in sex drive, I haven't had any side effects. At first you do get a little extra bump of energy but that went away. Prozac is the only thing that has worked for me.. And if anything I lost weight on it.
