Having taken Prozac in the past and seeing your question, I thought to check out the side effects listed on this site. After the "rare" section of side effects was "incidence unknown" and bloating was listed; which means they are aware that it happens but have no idea how common it is.
I believe you should should talk to your prescribing Doctor and ask for advice. She/he will know if you should persist (I wouldn't) or just change you to another SSRI and monitor how you respond. Not all SSRI's and SNRI's have the same side effects as each other. One might not agree with you while another might be the wonder drug that leaves you feeling better than you have for ages.
Good luck and take care, Steve.
you maybe constipated or the opposite, diarrhea, when first starting an antidepressant. increase you water consumption and this will get better. takes the body a little while to adjust. give it time, if not better in a week or two consult physician.
