Prozac (fluoxetine) is a prescription antidepressant that belongs to the group of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and can treat such conditions as depression, panic, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive symptoms. If you are younger that 24 your health care provider will need to see you regularly during the first 12 weeks of your treatment. This has to do with the fact people of that age more often report suicidal thoughts at the beginning of their treatment, so their condition needs to be monitored to make sure they benefit from taking Prozac. When taking Prozac you may get such mild side effects as constipation, stuffy nose, increased appetite, sleep problems, dry mouth, mild nausea, drowsiness, and some other ones that can be individual. You can keep on taking Prozac if these symptoms do not change in intensity. It's very important that you let your doctor know about any drugs you are taking at the moment that may potentially cause interactions, such as clozapine, clopidogrel, blood thinners, haloperidol, alprazolam, other antidepressants, or seizure medications.
