      I lost 20 pounds on Prozac over the course of 3 months because I was so nauseous ALL the time. Antidepressants usually all decrease the libido. I also felt like I was watching my life through a movie. Nothing felt real. Just please be careful, open, and honest with the person prescribing the drugs.

      Started Prozac at 16, 5'1" and 150 lbs at the time. I've wax and waned on my weight since starting it, but weight gain can happen. Anxiety and depression fits/episodes will happen, but not as often.

      When I first started fluoxetine it made me really drowsy for a few days and then same again a week later when I got to the full dose. But after that I no longer get any side effects, even after stopping, restarting, and changing doses

      Sexual side effects. I wouldn't feel tired, but if I lay down, I would sleep for hours

      Definitely watch out for it making your depression worse. It did that to me, and it took me way too long to realize that it was the meds causing it. Be careful and plus reach out to your doctor immediately if you notice something like that.

Some common symptoms of Prozac include nausea, headache, dizziness, and tiredness. However, these side effects tend to be temporary and may fade with time. Keep in mind that everyone's experience with medications can vary, so it's essential to consult your doctor if you have any concerns or experience persistent side effects.
