Both bupropion and fluoxetine are safe and effective antidepressants. Bupropion causes less impotence than fluoxetine does. Lack of concentration, disorganized and unfocussed thinking, amnesia, and numerous other cognitive difficulties can be experienced by depressed individuals due to the depression itself.

Another medication that is sometimes added to SSRI in the treatment of depression is bupropion (welbutrin) and it has even been shown to cause a small weight loss over the first few months (it suppresses the appetite). However, if the eating disorder you are is either anorexia or bulimia this is not an option because during clinical trails bupropion caused a slightly increased rate of new seizures in those two eating disorders.

Avatar m tn Chemically, the fluoxetine hydrochloride (prozac is the original trademarked term but the patent's expired so it can be made generically) ought to be identical, regardless of its makers' labelling, colouring, packaging (as a tablet or capsule). Prozac has been generic for a very long time, there are several companies now making generic versions. Precisely which were your before and after brands of generic prozac (fluoxetine hydrochloride)?
Avatar f tn Increased sweating is a common side effect of Prozac (Fluoxetine is the generic for Prozac so it is the exact same thing). For most patients the sweating settles down after a month or two after start of therapy...but not for all. Some patients that struggle with the sweating issue with take their Prozac at bedtime to try to minimize this side effect, but even that doesn't always work. Keep in mind that there are other anti-anxiety/depression choices out there if you are willing to try.

448909 tn?1223318578 Hi, Have you gone from 2 a day straight down to 1 a day? It does sound as if you are experiencing withdrawal. Prozac (fluoxetine) is one that needs to be withdrawn slowly. I would suggest only half a tablet less every other day, then every 2 days then every 3 days for at least a couple of weeks before then cutting down a whole tablet down to one and then follow the same pattern. Suddenly dropping by halving your normal dose after so long on this medication is not good.
Avatar n tn For many medications, information regarding the potential effects on pregnancy is lacking, or the information is not of sufficient quality to make truly informed decisions. Fortunately, in case of Prozac (fluoxetine), excellent information is available. Although other sources can have useful information, physicians (and other health care providers) place the most significance on articles published in peer-reviewed journals.
