This medicine worked horribly for me. I didn't feel any better and it made me gain tons of weight. My doctor didn't believe me when I told her that I gained between 10 - 15 pounds in 2 months because of this medicine she told me that it was my eating habits.

I started prozac a year ago. Before, I was mean to everyone around me. No one could get along with me. Wanted to just walk into the woods and disappear or worse. Now I am happy with my marriage, job and parents. My family thinks it is the best thing I every did for myself and others.

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.
