2193833 tn?1339414902 when it comes to the meds, and the reintroduction of the drug into our systems causes a faster than normal increase in the serotonin, which leads to more severe side effects. Some people had no side effects initially, and the second time around, have every one in the book. That was me, pretty much. The bad news is, it will probably be much more difficult for you to adjust to the Prozac this time around, you may have to endure more side effects that are bothersome.
Avatar n tn Look up antidepressants and tardive dyskensia, Tardive dysphoria which are but a few long term problems. In light of potential problems and side effects you should know that antidepressants are barely better than placebo the science does not support there effectiveness. refer" Your drug may be your problem". Peter Breggin md and David Cohen phd. For other long term side effects i suggest you read Joseph Glenmullens"Prozac Backlash".
543959 tn?1301319019 we just started the lexapro slowly as i slowly decreased the fluoxetine. fluoxetine stays in your body for several weeks, so withdrawal effects are less likely (and/or less severe) than with other SSRIs. i would speak to your dr. about a slow transition from one med to the other... or give the buspirone a try. buspirone is supposed to be similar to valium in terms of it's anti-anxiety properties. so if you are having trouble with anxiety or panic, this might be a good combination for you.
Avatar n tn The results of this study show that women who use the antidepressant fluoxetine (Prozac) in the first trimester of pregnancy have approximately a 2-fold increased risk of miscarriage, compared to nonusers. 17) BIRTH outcomes in pregnant women taking fluoxetine.

Avatar n tn This can cause a multitude of serious physical and emotional adverse side effects. Giving these drugs to children is absolutely unconscionable for many reasons. One of the most obvious is that increased cortisol impairs the development and regeneration of the liver, kidney and muscles, as well as impairing linear growth. Yet, learning that even one parent was given this information would be surprising. PROZAC: PANACEA OR PANDORA?
Avatar n tn I have heard that Zoloft in combination with Ritalin can help with some of the initial side effects..any truth in this? Any first time experiences with the med would help. Also I am completely new to SSRIs.
Avatar n tn You said the side effects of FLUOXETINE are nasty and how long do these side effects last? If i take the this meds for 4 weeks and stop completely, will the symptoms come back up again as soon as i stop taking it?? If not, how long will it take for anxiety symptoms to show back up again??? Thanks for sharing your experiences on this.
Avatar n tn Long history of vaginal redness during period with external skin effects. A lot of blood in urine one day prior to diagnosis, not related to bladder infection. Diagnosis made by urogynecologist after discharge increased with using health store suppositories for maintaining vaginal ph. This led to my diagnosis. Amoxil 500 was given and no more problems! Husband was not treated and he is fine also. It has been a year now.
1807991 tn?1438783370   I really believe the Prozac's side effects were becoming a nightmare in themselves, with the anxiety, nervousness, twitching and total sexual disfunction, i believe the Prozac was responsible for! i thought it was the ribo, peg or incivek, but now i think it could have been that darn Prozac too!   This is my second day off and i am already starting to feel less anxiety and the nervous tapping and twitching has stopped, I actually have noticed that my taste has started to improve too!
Avatar m tn Cipramil is citalopram, or Celexa in the U.S. Citalopram is similar to fluoxetine, or Prozac. They are in the drug class of SSRI or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. The SSRIs are commonly used to treat mood disorders, such as depression. I assume you are taking it for depression, and I hope you are under close supervision of a primary care provider. It is important for patients who are taking SSRIs to be closely monitored, especially during the initial starting phase.
Avatar n tn As the online specialist suggested, Fluoxetine (or Prozac) has been in use for a number of years with great results and very few side effects. The drug is indicated for use in children and, by all accounts, is quite safe and effective.
Avatar f tn Natural serotonin supplements are likely to be the most effective means to raise serotonin levels in the brain while being safe and without the side effects of anti depression medications. Derived from seeds of Griffonia simpicifolia, a native African plant, 5-HTP, or 5-hydroxy tryptophan, is a safe dietary supplement that introduces higher levels of tryptophan into the blood stream which then enter the central nervous system and facilitate the needed synthesis of serotonin.
242516 tn?1368227505 A fascinating research study was published today by Irving Kirsch of the University of Hull, questioning whether or not 4 popular antidepressants are any better than placebo, and found that they weren't any better. Here's the study: http://medicine.plosjournals.org/perlserv/?request=get-document&doi=10.1371/journal.pmed.
Avatar m tn I really don't know if meds will change his personality but they could leave unwanted side-effects. This is more just a general gripe, but is seems to me the med industry likes to push meds for just about anything. As far as meds and children go, it's a contraversial debate. Some people believe that it will cause perminant changes because children's brains are still forming. Whether they are right, I don't know. I'm just suspcious in general about certain meds.
Avatar f tn Some medications I had gave me bad side effects - especially Prozac. Hope you find the right one for you. As I am old, the weight gain does not bother me too much, but I sure am chubby!!
1571878 tn?1354953383 Because I am on fluoxetine (Prozac) for fibromyalgia management, I began TRIPPING BALLS. I had heard of robotripping in college, but I considered it an old wives' tale. WRONG. I thought tripping was fantastic, and enjoyed the rest of my Robitussin until my infection had cleared up. I would wake up in the mornings still tripping, and would have a blast exercising and going to school and work. I finished the bottle and moved on with life. But I couldn't.

574042 tn?1217660018 Potential side effects of Remeron include, but may not be limited to, drowsiness, dizziness, anxiousness, constipation, upset stomach, vomiting, confusion and dry mouth. In addition to the aforementioned side effects associated with antidepressants, a new study has linked these drugs to an increased risk of death amongst patients with coronary artery disease.
Avatar m tn I stopped taking it, now, 4 months later, I still feel little pain. SSRI causes sexual side effects in almost 100% of the cases, however testicular pain is not listed in the official patient brochures. How are you doing now? Do you still take Prozac?
Avatar m tn Alpha-adrenergic receptor agonists, including clonidine(Catapres) and guanfacine (Tenex). Clonidine has fewer and milder side effects than the neuroleptics in general, with the most common being sedation. Sedation occurs in 10%–20% of cases and can often be controlled through adjusting the dosage. The phenothiazines may be used when haloperidol or pimozide has proven ineffective.
Avatar n tn He is so temperamental with many things which might be good for him. Ugh! The doctor put him on kids Prozac, fluoxetine to deal withthe depression side of it. He says that has the best track record with least lasting side effects etc.. Just started yesterday, so we will see how it goes. Maybe we can coax him towards the tea once he is stabilized. I am hoping i a stable place I can get him to do some things which he did not want to do normally. We will see.
Avatar n tn There is a drug that I am on to help me with my anxiety called Fluoxetine (Prozac). There are some small side effects that could develop, but most are associated with bodily functions more than anything else.
1836616 tn?1328684209 I have had new symptoms everyday since getting this medication under control and taking it right, its Fluoxetine (generic for prozac) and yesterday I was very anxious and my chest was hurting and now today I was fine this morning and then this afternoon I went out with a friend for an hour or so and while I was out I got light headed dizzy and was shaking (little) almost like a fainting feeling, the got home and am still very light headed and feeling woozy! I'M SO OVER FEELING LIKE THIS!!!

Avatar f tn Any weight gain or other bad side effects? I would be very interested in knowing how this works out for you as time goes on. If you care to reach me directly, you can use raffertycole at yahoo.com. Thanks and I'm glad for you that something is working!
419309 tn?1326506891 In most cases ADs are started out at least a month pre-tx for the very purpose of determining whether it has negative side effects for the patient . Since it takes only 4-7 days for most ADs to reach therapeutic levels this leaves the patient time before tx for any necessary adjustments. ADs can cause worsening depression in some, mostly children. As far as I know they have never been shown to induce depression in those who have none.
3126128 tn?1342885371 My experience w/anti-depressants (AD)......on one kind or another for 10 yrs! A long.....time. I am 117 days clean (off hydros & soma) and have been off antidepressants for that long as well. I just decided I hadn't really given my seratonin levels a chance to level out.....or see what they are.....or would be like without a reuptake med for an extremely long time. I'd like to find out. I have days when my atrophied muscles, slow physical progress & stamina really depress me.
Avatar n tn On the other hand , antidepressants dont tend to cause rebound symptoms . Prozac ( Fluoxetine ) , one of the antidepressants proposed to help in ADHD , has been used with some documented benefit . It's main indication in literature is as an antidepressant and in cases of obssesive- compulsive behaviors . Regarding it's early side effects ,there maybe some "behavioral activation" with nervousness , sleeplessness and a feeling of being excited .

Avatar f tn (From The New York Hospital Cornell Medical Center), and sometimes suicidal tendencies especially with fluoxetine (Prozac). These results have been found in adults and some young people, but the best course for prescribing SSRI's to the young seems to be extreme caution.
