Prozac is like the typical antidepressant, the one you think of when you think depression. I had really high hopes for this one. my doctor had said that “If Zoloft doesnt work, Prozac works”. It didnt. After two weeks of feeling nothing, I went up on my dose. In a way, Prozac was just as scary as Zoloft. It took me a week to realize I felt more depressed. It was a creepy, gradual worsening that snuck up behind me.
Other side effects I had were insomnia and horrible stomach aches which resulted in loss of appetite.
