Common Questions and Answers about Prozac side effects on dogs

prozac

Avatar f tn Bloating can be a side effect of Prozac as it can cause intestinal swelling. The shakes may be a side effect as well. If you're 18, your hips are naturally going to become larger. Nothing to worry about. Get off the Yasmin if you can, unless you have to take it for some medical reason other than you don't want to become pregnant. In my opinion, that stuff is bad news. (See: http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn ve stayed with it the longest. My question is regarding the side effects. Occasionally I will notice an internal restless feeling -- usually lasts a few days. It's almost like I feel kind of antsy. My sleep is not disturbed -- I sleep normal as usual. I've also noticed, and have in the past, that I have some twitches. Various muscles in my body will twitch from time to time.
20632981 tn?1503687567 My question is, does Prozac have low side effects like Zoloft but does it work better? And should I be taking a SSRI or SNRI for depression and anxiety, what works better with less side effects?
2193833 tn?1339411302 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. The GOOD news is, the side effects still should subside in about 2 weeks (maybe a little less). The Xanax will definitely help with the side effects as well. You may want to speak with your doctor and see if he would be okay with you taking a slightly higher dose of the Xanax while you adjust to the Prozac...just a few weeks.
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.
2080404 tn?1643113754 Hi there. Is this better? Prozac does give some gi side effects. When my son started this, he had nausea and it lasted for about a week and a half and then began getting better. He chewed ginger gum, ate tums and peptobismal chews. They seemed to help him. Was trazadone new as well? I will say that unless something is really awful, giving a full trial is best in my opinion. My son actually needed the full dose of prozac of 80 mg, so prepare that they may tweak your dosage as well.
Avatar f tn Usually there are side effects, which should diminish with time. I found Prozac did not suit me at all, but it suits lots of other people. My side effects were so bad I had to stop the 10mg dose within a few weeks. We all react differently to drugs, what suits one person, may not suit another. You have not been on Prozac long, so you may need to give it time to get into your body. If you really think the side effects are too bad, then I suggest you go back to the doctor.
Avatar f tn Has anyone else taking Fluoxetine (similar to Prozac) experienced side effects? I have noticed some odd changes in the way my body responds to exercise; specifically, excessive sweating. I'm not sure if the medication is directly linked, but in the past year (I have been taking the drug for about 2.5 years) I break into an all over the body sweat very easily, and it has happened even when I'm not exercising.
Avatar f tn What you're now on is Prozac. Two problems potentially here. First, you can't just quit Zoloft -- you need to taper off it as most people get some withdrawal from quitting these meds. That most likely explains your symptoms more so than the Prozac. Often, at the tail end of a taper down, Prozac will be used to help when withdrawal is bad because it's considered easier to stop taking, but that's only at the very end of the taper.
Avatar n tn I am wondering if anyone has any of the sexual side effects? Prozac was the first med I was given about 2 years ago and I felt dead to the world and had terrible sexual side effects. I had to stop them. My doc said I may get them since Celexa is in the same category of meds. If I do then we can try something else.
Avatar f tn i was on 20 mg prozac since jan09 i had most of the side effects dizziness feeling faint high bp nervousness anxitey dry mouth fuzzy head just feeling really awful i did say to the gp but he said to increase the dose to 40mg i did this and felt a lot worse so i stopped taking them the first few days i had a real bad headache and neck pain but now i am just feeling a lot better more like myself
Avatar m tn t have it. the doctors are still out on fibromyalgia though.
Avatar f tn t have the answer but it almost sounds as though you have answered your own question in that side-effects from prozac could be responsible. Do you remember roughly how long it took to adjust to prozac last time? I don't typically respond so much to the medication questions because medications can be complex and are best left to those with some knowledge or experience about them. It sounds like your doctor is managing the drug transitions well.
Avatar f tn I have switched from prozac to wellbutrin xl due to sexual side affects. Prozac worked great for everything else for the past 11 years. I have been on Wellbutrin for 3 days and have severe insomnia, constipation and dizziness. Will these side effects last long? Will they go away eventually?
Avatar n tn That may be the reason why you are experiencing the side effects. If you just started on Abilify then you should go talk to your doctor and let him know that you cannot tolerate the side effects and be put on something else.
1798419 tn?1315810427 ve heard that some people lose weight on prozac, but some people who are skinny to begin with (like me) often gain weight with prozac. I've been off it for ages but have recently gone on it again. I'm having a hard time adjusting back to it as well. From what I remember, last time it took me about a month before the side effects went away. You could try mirtazapine (Avanza) it wont affect your sex drive. I tried it, but it made me way too drowsy.
Avatar n tn Definatly ask your Doctor who is prescribing Prozac his opinion ,then make your own mind up,I wouldnt ,but perhaps there is another way , ask the Doc if there is another Med you can take with less effects , so you wean off Prozac and still are able to feed Baby.Both are important questions you have to ask your self.
Avatar n tn drowsiness, dizziness, weakness; runny nose, sore throat, headache, flu symptoms; nausea, diarrhea, changes in appetite; weight changes; decreased sex drive, impotence, or difficulty having an orgasm; or dry mouth, increased sweating.

Avatar f tn On the Cerenia packaging it said that excessive drooling was a side effect of the drug. I realize that drooling also goes with anxiety and vomiting. Rocky actually drooled ALOT more on the Cerenia than when he got sick. We still do many short trips with him and hopefully he'll outgrow this. I only will use the meds on a long trip. Thanks for the responses.
Avatar f tn My German Shepherd was recently prescribed incurin and it has caused her not to eat and a little bit aggressive and scared... She also was running around with her hackles up and starting fights with my other dogs...She only had 3 or 4 days of it and then I took her off of it this last Sunday was her last dose...She still is not wanting to eat and not 100% back to herself? How long do the side effects last...It was taking me an hour and a half to get her to eat 2 cups of food...
Avatar f tn I was on Prozac for only 8 day but on the 8th day I experienced most ALL the bad side effects listed! Anxiety, nervousness, chills, cool pale skin, dry mouth, confusion, tiredness, weakness, trembling & shaking, restlessness, drowsiness, loss of appetite, burning in my chest, I thought I was going CRAZY! It was a nightmare! The next day I decided NOT to take it. I was a little shakey in the morning but the rest of the day I felt fine.
Avatar n tn Hello! I'm looking for hope that these awful side effects I'm experiencing on Prozac will fade with time. My doctor switched me from Zoloft to Prozac. I have taken Zoloft in the past but this time it was not working for me so after a couple of months we agreed to try Prozac. This is my 12th day on Prozac and my anxiety is at an all time low. The first few days on Prozac I started to feel better (could have been placebo effect.).
