I am just looking up all the details about this medication-have only been on it a few days and have felt flu like and cold. I am never cold. I do feel a bit in a cloud or glazed over but calm. I am curious if anyone else has had these type of reactions so quickly and did they go away?
Flu-like symptoms (eg, fever, chills, muscle aches) are a common side-effect of Fluoxetine. See https://www.drugs.com/sfx/fluoxetine-side-effects.html
If these symptoms continue and are bothersome see your doctor again. Fluoxetine may not be suitable for you.
