I am a Nurse and have tried several different types. Was not a fan and very reluctant to try prozac. Took for 4 weeks and it was if a lightbulb went on one morning. Give it a try, whats the worst it could do? make me feel even worse.

Comment:
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.
