keeps depression away


 Though this is the generic form of Prozac it does not effect its potency. Having taken this for depression for approx. two months I can say I am pleased with the results. Side effects vary upon the individual taking it but I found them slight at most. Side effects include nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, anxiety, trouble sleeping, loss of appetite, weakness, tiredness, sweating, or yawning. I have had all of these but none extreme. There are of course serious side effects that should be reported to your doctor if they occur. In fact if you experience any besides the ones listed do so immediately.  This medication is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) used to treat depression, anxiety disorders (panic attacks), OCD, bulimia and premenstrualcysphoric disorder.  One particular side effect I have noticed is much more vivid and active dreams. Not in a disturbing or nightmare induced way, just more consistant. Depression has been supressed as a result of taking this medication which was the reason for it being prescribed.  I do recommend taking this for depression.

prozac, does it really help depression?


When a person is taking a medication like prozac, I wonder if it really works. I have heard alot of pros and cons regarding this type of medication and here I am taking it for my bipolar manic depression. Of course a person always wants to feel good about themselves but is medication a requirement? In my case I would have to say yes because it helps prevent those deep depression states that I often get into, and kind of balances me out. Although I do take other medications for my disease, I often find myself in a manic feel and I feel on top of the world during one of these episodes. It seems like I have drank a whole pot of coffee without the jitteries. In my eyes , the prozac does work for me otherwise I would be on this rollercoaster on a daily basis. I have no side affects from it and no upset stomach. Although I have heard the side affects a pretty bad, I haven't experienced one thank goodness. It's hard for a doctor to find the right medication for a patient that works for them. I have to thank my doctor very much for the work he does for me.                                Thanks for your time, Lorrie
