Fluoxetine (Prozac)


For others pm this how long did side effects last for you? Also do you take yours in morning or night?

I was on lexapro but they're all SSRI's. I would say to give these side effects a month to calm down. If after a month you still feel them and you are not comfortable with them, try another medication. Also I took mine at night.

I take my SSRI at breakfast time and half of my benzo before bed curb middle of the night anxiety.

I took it for a few months but had to stop because of...um...problems in the bedroom. I don't want to get any more specific than that. I took it in the morning because it kept me awake if I took it at night.

I have been on them for 3 weeks - the first few days I took them at night but they kept me awake, so I switched to taking them in the morning - the side effects have worn off now not feeling as depressed, my anxiety has not improved that much but my GP says it can take around 6 weeks to fully work so fingers crossed...
