so I am being put on Fluoxetine for my anxiety. I also have ADHD and was told it'd help me. I'm curious on other people's experiences on it!

      My psychiatrist said fluoxetine increases anxiety and I've never heard of it treating ADHD. Stimulants are the most effective treatment for ADHD.

      Fluoxetine is one of the best medicines I have tried. I actually feel like a normal person but also not numb.

      It's been a life saver for me.

      I just switched off of fluexotine after two years of taking it (specifically for depression) but I had to add addition medications to help with my ADHD and anxiety so I don’t know how much it will help in those areas, personally it didn’t help anything but my depression but it flatlined not too long ago so I’m going on Effexor

      I have both anxiety and ADHD. I take Fluoxetine. It does not do anything for ADHD. It is SSRI drug. Meaning, it simply works on the serotonin in your brain. It does not help with concentration and focus disorders such as ADHD.

      Iv been on it for a few years but it hasn’t caused me any issues that we’re too bad yet. Having it with others could make it weird. If you have any questions I’m here ✨

      I had terrible side effects from Fluoxetine... But everyone is different and handles medication differently, I hope it goes well for you
