So I was just curious what people thought of Prozac...
I have been suffering from depression, anxiety and panic attacks since I was at least 15 (I'm 27 now), and have been on a many different meds. Back in high school I tried a number of different medications, but unfortunately without finding a way to access all of my medical records I cannot remember all of the ones I have tried...side effect of these meds probably. So in the past several years I have tried a few more and retried some ones I took back then. I just don't seem to have good luck with staying on the right ones (or seeing someone who prescribes them and follows them well).
It recently occurred to me that there probably are not many that I haven't tried...and then I though of Prozac. So I was curious what other people think of it and experiences they may have had. For me weight gain and sexual side effects are a big deal. Due to the many anti-depressants and hormones (for another medical issue) I have been on over the years I have gained a decent amount of weight and I am working very hard to lose it. So I know that sounds a bit vain, but I believe the way you look, or the way you feel about yourself, can contribute to depression and anxieties.
If anyone has any advice or comments on Prozac I would appreciate it.
