Does anyone else get tics from Prozac?

      @lulu4 The Prozac is causing the tics, or it is a freak coincidence. When I started taking Prozac when I was 19, that’s when the tics started. When my dose was increased, the tics worsened and became debilitating and unbearable. When my dose was decreased, the tics became less severe and were manageable. I don’t meet the diagnostic criteria for any tic disorders in the DSM-5. I have found a single case study of someone developing tics from Prozac.

      To clarify, I don’t take lithium. Alike added it on to this post. Idk why

      Not that I'm aware of and Prozac is one of the oldest and most studied antidepressants. I do know a lady with really severe ticks after being on lithium. I personally, get this buzzy skippy, spinning feeling in my head when my Wellbutrin XR starts wearing off.
