I feel much better than not being on it, but it does cause extreme drowsiness; to the point of not being able to get out of bed for hours. I am less motivated to do anything and haven't been out of the house in weeks. My doctor just increased it so we will see the outcome.

I went into a severe depression on the generic and it took many months to get my life back on track. Name Brand Prozac is wonderful -- Generic Prozac ... Show Full Comment

I took this for a couple of years and it worked very well for my depression and made me a much nicer person. I stopped using it after about four years and the b_tchiness came back big time. I also had a lot of vasovagal syncopy (passing out) episodes using prozac (which doctors told me was anxiety/panic attacks). I didn't feel anxious and I certainly wasn't panicking about anything.
