    I have major depression and was on Prozac for years. I lost my husband of 25 years. I needed a change and the doctor put me on Fetzima. I have had dizzyness and extreme aggatation not to mention my heart rate is erratic. My depression is way worse and have had suicidal thoughts. I'm off of it and am back on my Prozac. I'm riding out side effects. Never ever will I take this drug again!!

    It works sporadically. I would get an increased dosage when the old one stopped working, but then I hit maximum dosage. It worked for a month, and now it doesn't work at all.
