    Been taking it since 1986...only side effect for me was weight gain. Tried to come off with doctor's help and crashed...tried generic and crashed...am able to self medicate (upping dosage) when needed. Absolutely saved my life!! Loss of sleep and time change cause low depression and therefore I up by 20 mgs. until stable again.

    I am 60 years old.I had been on prozac for 15 years and was very satisfied with it. I felt normal and enjoyed life. The only side effects sweating on my facial area and my sexual drive is deminished with some weight gain.I have recently been put on cymbalta for fibromyalgia. I feel like a zombie..no energy..can't get anything done. I am going to try to get off and go back to prozac.

    Comment:
    tried other meds- cymbalta made me severely nauseous, so am on 40mg prozac now and works much better. took about 10 days to really feel the benefits. was having crying spells, felt listless all the time, and just general dark thoughts and gloominess. mood has much improved, and meds didn't make me a zombie- i still cry every once and awhile.
