    I have been taking this medicine for over 20+ years. Everything has been very good for me unitl now, they have given me a new generic. Within the first month I noticed it is not working and now about 9 weeks. I know I have to go back to my doctor because it is not working. I'm taking the new generic GG 550. I want my old one back!

    I have a history of depression and have been on every anti-depressant known to man. I have been taking Fluoxetine for several years now, and for my depression, it has worked the best out of all of them. However, in the past 2 weeks I have weaned myself off the drug due to the side effects I have lived with for years. I am tired all the time, I get bad headaches, and have gained 30 pounds!

    I've been on 20mg of fluoxetine for a month now and it has helped with my depression. I no longer feel on the verge of crying about everything. The only side effect I'm having are headaches and teeth and jaw pain. I'm afraid I will have to switch to something else if the jaw pain doesn't go away soon. Works extremely well for the depression though.
