Prozac for fun

Common Questions and Answers about Prozac for fun

prozac

I thought it was just a coincidence but the brand name Prozac worked much better than the generic for me. My doctor confirmed this and said she didn't believe the generic form was as effective. Anyone else have any experience with this?
I have been on 20 mg of Prozac for over 6 months now. When I started the Prozac, I also began psychotherapy and quit drinking alcohol. From time to time, over the first few months I would have a glass of wine, but each time, I would experience a mood swing (irritability, negativity, depression, and all the other fun stuff I was dealing with before I got on Prozac).
I am on prozac and have been for about 6 months....This last week I have been very manic with ALOT of paranoia and anger. Could this be the prozac or would it have happened by now?
I have now been taking Prozac for six years and I see no reason to stop taking it. For me it is just another "vitamin" that I need to take to keep my serotonin levels healthy.
Today is day 13 on Prozac. I have completely lost my appetite for about a week now, off and on (which is not necessarily bad because I am way overweight) I have gone from 234 to 222 in less than 2 weeks. The problem is, I woke up terribly nauseated this morning.
I have been on it for 8yrs for depression/OCD/Panic disorder. It has worked wonders for me. And for that I am truly thankful. But now 8yrs later, I am 50lbs heavier and have my libido is Nil. I want to come off paxil or switch to something else. Has anyone successfully done this? I have only taken off 3mg of paxil for two weeks now and I'm dizzy and I awake at 3:00 am with tremors/fear. I was wondering if adding Prozac while decressing the Paxil would make if easier? I ask my Dr.
Your brain needs to rest just like your body. Prozac can be a wonder drug for some, but for others, it can exerbate their symptoms. There are so many newer drugs out there, that are more specific for OCD, and some of them can be taken at night and will work for both problems. Praying works great too. Good luck!
I really had no other side effects from either med. Lithium is more for mania and prozac for depression. I take a Lithium/Wellbutrin combo and it is awsome for me. Controls both sides pretty darn good! It is really trial and error with any med, it might or might not effect your libido. Just have to try and see. If it does, switch again! I know tegretol kills it too. So you might do better on Lithium or Prozac.
I am an 18 year old girl. I was on prozac for maybe a week, only 20 mgs but i was taking it every day and it was not prescribed to me, it was my moms old prescription so i guess that was a very stupid decision. I smoked a tiny bit of pot on it, literally one hit, and about an hr later I started having heart palps and tremors- major anxiety. It was soo bad i couldnt even breathe. I was sweating and shaking uncontrollably. Ever since that I have just not been quite right.
my dr told me i could have an occasional beer with my xxanax and prozac....i drink non alkie beer which is less than 0,5 percent alchol by volume....

My verticle double vision is popping up more often. I just recovered from pneumonia, having 102 fever for 4 days is not fun. There is good news. We signed on the house April 15. Now we are trying to get the property tax frozen since I am on disability. And during my sickness I bonded with a female duck. She started to hang out under the bedroom window. You all have a good day.

I gave it a 3 month trial. Getting off was not fun either. I know Prozac comes in a liquid and has a longer half life so getting on and if needed off might be easier. Is there any reason I would not want to try Prozac at maybe 1mg a day doubling it each week to try to avoid the insane agitation I experienced with the Lexapro. Would that even work? Or is there a less agitating Ad out there. I don't want to do a drug but I owe it to myself and my wife to be happy.
it's been a long week waiting for updates from our members. Lots of people having treatments and Dr. appts. Many getting answers. Some working on getting answers ... Lots of new members, some have de-lurked .. Stop by and have a virtual drink ... we are open for business!
It was pretty funny, the way they all scattered like the wind, and wouldn't come out of cowering for about an hour. I kept the airhorns around for a long time after that. The dogs would all eye them suspiciously whenever they saw them. But I never had to use them again.
My wife is accusing me of abusing the benzos prescribed for side effects, I'm taking prozac for the depression...I'm just falling apart. Not abusing any meds. I've had real difficulties w hemoglobin, procrit worked- then it was Nutrafils- Neupagen worked, ramped back up to regular dosage (1200mg Riba 150mcg peg) No support on the home front, maybe she's just worn out too.
she lives with me, her dad but has a great relationship with bith her mother and I, she claims. her mother wants to take her for treatment and I agree if that is what she believes she needs. I on the other hand have little faith in the mental medical health field, I am an attorney, but If that is something she feels may help I will agree to anything. she is a prefect girl but she does not want to be normal, or maybe she does not think she can be normal.
This is primarily for the guys, but gals..if you know of guys that experienced this..please, share. We all know these pills deaden sensations, and I guess that's what's happened to me during sex. Let's just say that the sensation is back, and I'm a minute man in bed. Any guys have this and how long did it last??
I have also taken them just for the fun of it. I have gone through the WD more then a few times. Some of those times, feeling very emotional, crying about things I have done and said to my children while wanting more. I must admit, I do enjoy taking them. Let's face it, they are fun to take. They make watching paint dry fun. But the fun part seems to have faded. I taken them to feel normal mostly. I have found that I can taper down rather quickly now, almost in a couple days.
I just cant believe this she now has a web site asking for donations . She wanted all of these kids but she expects others to pay for them.This is so wrong ...
I am trying to get a professional/experienced opinion on whether or not it would be ok to try a GABA supplement for my dog's anxiety, and if so, how much would be safe to take? She is about 5 years old weighs 18 pounds. I've tried herbal blends and treats with herbs and little doses of supplements in them but none of that has been strong enough. I've tried T-touch and wrapping/swaddling her and Thundershirt and they are not strong enough.
We were both wondering if good ECT was a viable option for treating her depression and restoring her libido. I am treated for deperession also (Prozac), but the medication has not affected my libido at all. This situation is very distressing to me ...it distresses my wife at times, but only for my sake. The loss of her libido is a real issue in our Marriage and we are desperate for any help.
I would be interested to know if its just me or everyone else does itl Please let me know for fun. Anyway, our bodies are an amazing pile of nreves and tissue and parts that all play on eachother.
Then again I'm sure the OP is used to this coming from PertyKitty anyway since she seems to seek her out just to criticize and make fun of her. Thisi s a REAL condition for this woman. If Perty had nothing "nice" to say, then she shouldn't say it, right??? That is what I am seeing here lately from every thread I read!!! It is so TIRING!!!

he was sharing his thoughts on why he abused drugs, and he said it was a substatute for intamacy. i have read that porn is a substitute for itamacy. but i could see his point, drugs take away the pain of lonliness, or at least mask it. i always took drugs because it made me feel better,and it masked all my pains. wether emotional, or mental. but drugs in the end always cause more pain.the pain of isolation,the pain of living a secret life.
I think the weakness along with the tastes kicks my butt the most I pray for a whole lot for strength. Every day is a new challenge. Everything tastes like crap! Ice cream burns my mouth, swallowing pills is hard, like my throat is swollen. Shoot...doc won't prescribe AD's for me till I tell him I'm really suffering from depression. I want to be the most peaceful person I can be while on therapy. My job is to heal others. I can't be a basket case to do this.
