Fluoxetine is used to treat depression.

Fluoxetine is an antidepressant in a group of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Fluoxetine affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression, panic, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive symptoms.

Fluoxetine is used to treat major depressive disorder, bulimia nervosa (an eating disorder) obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).

Fluoxetine is sometimes used together with another medication called olanzapine (Zyprexa) to treat depression caused by bipolar disorder (manic depression). This combination is also used to treat depression after at least 2 other medications have been tried without successful treatment of symptoms.

if you do not need it then it shouldn't even be prescribed it is a drug that must be prescribed by a physician is that what you are asking? it is only used for episodes of major depression sorry I don't mean to be harsh but unless you experience episodes like this or it is Rx by a doctor then you should not take this drug
