Hi, it is common to experience side effects during the first 4 weeks. You may experience worsening depression, lethargy, interrupted sleep,nausea, dizziness, you may feel very emotional, etc. I used to take Fluoxetine & i experienced feeling worse before i felt better, but i managed to get past it & found great success with it. I took it for several years. Do you want to discuss what you are experiencing?
The worst side affects I experienced while taking this med was weird dreams! I've mentioned this before, but the entire Looney Tunes cast was cussing at me! Lol Fluoxetine was the first antidepressant I ever took, I was in my mid twenties. This was the best thing that had ever happened in my life, even colors looked brighter! I find myself HAPPY.
