I have been on the generic Prozac for 4 years now. It changed my life. I finally felt like myself again after many years of not knowing what was wrong. I started out on 20 mg, then increased to 40 mg. Just a few side effects - night sweats and a little decrease in sex drive. Also, lost 35#, which was great!

Comment:
I had to stop taking this drug after two weeks because it was causing severe dizziness. I could not concentrate at all and it was very disturbing. Interestingly, I had no side effects for the first week. It was the second week when the dizziness started, and it just would not stop. I think it hit me once the drug built up in my system. I thought side effects would occur as soon as I started takin ... Show Full Comment

This drug has helped me so much. (The first 1-2 weeks on it made me feel awful...but I hung in there and now I'm fine.)I was very reluctant to take it at first (it took an unprompted crying fit in my doctor's office for him to ask me to consider it.) I was afraid it would turn me into someone I'm not, but actually, I feel more like myself (minus the excessive anxiety). I used to cry mo ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had been taking Prozac since 1994, I felt it wasn't effective anymore so last year I asked my doctor for something else. I spent a year on Lexapro. I just saw my doctor last week and I am back on Prozac, at a higher dosage. I believe that was all that was needed. With Prozac, my life is on an even keel again.
