Prozac in the morning

Common Questions and Answers about Prozac in the morning


Avatar m tn Hi, I am taking 60mg Prozac in the morning (past 4 weeks) and then 100mg Lithium (down from 200) with .5mg Clonazepam at bedtime for depression. Since upping the prozac from the original 20 I find that i feel quite nausious in the mornings often with the need to pass loose motions 3 or 4 times. It does fade a bit during the day but I'm not sure what may be causing this. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn Hi, I just recently started taking Prozac( on it for 2 weeks now) I have been on it in the past (and tolerated it well) and know that it can have a stimulating effect. I'm also on 15mg Remeron to help until my body gets use to the side effects from the Prozac. My Doctor told me that I can come off of the Remeron now, and I want to, but I'm hesitant because of the morning "jitters" that I already have and don't want to make them any worse.
Avatar f tn Hi, 20mg of Prozac is not so much i guess(for depression?), here in The Netherlands they would dose up max 200mg Prozac in 3 gfts a day with 50mg tablets. May be ask your doc to raise? But sometimes you do not feel it that the meds are working, ask the people around you if the stuff works, they would notice your behavour and emotions?
Avatar f tn I started at 225 mg 5 years ago and started wearning of by taking 75mg in the morning and 75mg in the evening and then after 5 days starting 75mg just in the morning, I only had dizzy spells and severe headaches but nothing unusual on the first day off Effexor my doctor switched me to Prozac after about 2 hours after taking the Prozac I began experiencing nausea, diarrhea, abdominal cramps and rapid heartbeat.
Avatar f tn I would contact your doctor right away to see what he has to say. Anytime something new arises you need to let him know. He will know if it is anxiety or your medication combo. Take care.
Avatar f tn When should i be feeling the feel good effects of prozac i'm coming up to 4 weeks tomorrow and at first felt ok but have gone a little down hill i was just wondering weather its my body trying to adjust to the med. I'm currently taking 20mg in the morning does anybody think this needs to be upped if i have felt good and now gone a little down.I also take omega 3 fish oil and vitamin b complex. having few side effects off the prozac shakes feeling sick and diarrhea.
Avatar m tn Have you been on the prozac for a while or is that new as well? Did the same doctor prescribe both medications? I would consult your doctor and/or pharmacist on what is the best method to start the new medication- they will have more information on your personal health history. So sorry I can't be more specific, but I do wish you the best!

Avatar m tn I skipped the next day and took it in the morning the following morning. I like taking it in the morning because it makes me calm throughout the day and I can still sleep at night. The first time I took it at night I didn't sleep well. Now I take it at 8am every morning and then I am asleep at night around 10-11pm without any help of sleeping pills. It really just depends on how you feel for which time of the day, you probably already know that since you have been taking Prozac.
Avatar n tn I'm on day 6 of Prozac and here comes the dizziness. Out of the blue, woke up this morning and was lightheaded, and off and on through the day. Is this normal? I just switched from Lexapro because it gave me the dizzies. Was on Prozac over 10 years ago and don't remember this as a side effect. I hate to keep switching meds because I want to get thru the bad of one to get to the good. Does that make sense? Should I stick it out? I have a call into my Dr.
Avatar f tn When do you take the prozac? In the morning or evening? And when do you take the xanax? Is that taken every day?
Avatar m tn If you just started taking the Prozac it could go away. You can also try dividing the dose into two -- half in the morning, half in the evening -- to reduce sedation if the drug is working and you want to stay on it.
Avatar m tn Has your son been over to Iraq or Afghanistan? Stress and anxiety are very prevelent in the services today, and if he was perscribed Prozac, I would say trust the doctors. I came back from my second deployment and was put on a different SSRI like Prozac, but I believe the most important thing is that he is seeing a therapist. This combination for me really helped me.

15911542 tn?1443910938 Try 1/8 tsp -once a day split it for some in morning and some at nite. See if this helps with the Poo.
7076597 tn?1387773752 IG @wbay650 follow I take 50 mg seroquil at night and in morning 20 mg Prozac. I think the Prozac is more effectice at 50 or 60 mg. Seroquel is for seeing gousts demond halusinations people on drugs, or hearing things. it will long term make your brain smarter and be able to focus better, work better and it cures anxiety. Prozac is better I feel. I hate the way seroquil makes your head hurt when you take 20mg or more. uncomfortable feeling. take 75/100 mg seroquil and 60 mg Prozac.
691920 tn?1252099461 Others around you may begin to see changes with you which you may not be able to see which are the returning of the person they know under the illness . Hang in there and be kind to yourself during this time and have good honest contact with those your involved with in terms of your on-going care.
Avatar f tn d discuss this with your psychiatrist, but I think your idea of taking it in the morning is worth a try. Prozac can be a stimulating antidepressant.
Avatar f tn Hives can be a side effect of Prozac, and you should call your doctor regarding this. But also look to see if you've changed, soap, deodorant, cologne, or have started any other medications as these things are usually the culprit when it comes to hives. It sounds like the hives only appear in the morning, so look at things you're using, eating or taking before bedtime. I hope you get some relief and best wishes!
1699033 tn?1514113133 Why does it happen and does it matter if I take the dose at a different time...say in the morning versus at night? Would I then be "edgy" when I was sleeping and not notice it? I have klonopin to take but even on a half of feel like a zombie looking for a place to lay down so I kind of try to fight that and usually give in after a few hours and take a quarter of a mg. Helps a little. Then the other quarter about 3 hours later!
Avatar f tn Like you i am on Wellbutrin 150 mg amd 20mg of Prozac i do well on both have been for 2 yrs now. The prozac makes me tired i tried no prozac and 1 wellbutrin in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. I had more energy but i was snapping at everyone and being hateful so went back on the prozac my Dr. said the prozac dosnt make you tired but my body says the different.
Avatar n tn MY doctor feels because I am still depress I should take Prozac in the morning and wellburtin in the afternoon. Is this quite normal? I am also taking (mobic , hydroxychkoroquine,fFOLBIC,evista,methotrexate(3 tablets a week) FOR MY ARITHRITIS(RHU.) AND OSEOP.) I am also taking alprazolam for anxiety 3 x a day. Now my psch. feels I need to add prozac. I want some imformation about this drug with all of the others I must take to my knees and etc. Looking to hear from you.
Avatar f tn I have experimented with my medicines before to see what time was the perfect time but in the end, once the medicine gets in your system really good, the time that you take it really doesn't matter. You felt better for a little bit there and that was the medicine doing what it is supposed to do. Once we start to feel better though we need to learn how to use what of that energy we need and then focus some of it on the future.
974371 tn?1424653129 Get up take an Omeprazole and go back to bed. Soon, the nausea starts every morning. I then take 1/2 a Xanax which helps some. I then try to eat some gluten free cereal with Lactaid followed by Gas-X. Had a gallbladder test in Nov., normal. Another test showed I do have some rapid gastric emptying. Took Nortriptyline, made me sick. Been on 20 mg Prozac but no improvement. Now want me to try Clonodine.
581310 tn?1253029550 All SSRI antidepressants can cause problems with sleeping in the first few weeks, Prozac is one of the SSRIs that has more of a stimulating effects (compared to Paxil - which has more of a sedating effect). You should try taking the Prozac first thing in the morning. The sleep problems should go away in another week or so; however, you will likely run into the same problem when you start upping your dose. Relaxation techniques before going to bed may help.
311051 tn?1193416206 I have had anxiety and depression for a while now. Just recently I was put on Prozac from 125mg of zoloft. I am now taking 20mg of prozac and 2mg of Klonopin at night. I feel lightheaded and dizzy, I always have a headache and half the time feel depersonalization. I hate it! My psych this morning told me it's not the meds, he says that I am just anxiuos and making myself think it's the meds. He also said I could come off of anti- depressants all together if I want to.
Avatar f tn My doctor has given me diazepam 2mg if and when i need it had one yesterday morning and the morning before but not this morning yet. Was just wondering if I need to give it a little longer for the prozac to wrk or is it time for a change.
