Fluoxetine Depression Reviews

Mon, 15 Aug 2011
I'm 18 and was prescribed fluoexitine as a way to gain control of my volatile mood swings and Depression. Initially before going on the drug I was skeptical that it was the best thing for me. I was taking two tablets a day and had intense side effects. Including...anxiety, suicidal thoughts ( which I NEVER had before ) trembling, dry mouth, increased thirst, intense and vivid dreams ( which I can remember in full today ) sweating, drowsiness and trouble sleeping. I would suggest seek alternatives before going on this depressant. I was only on it for 2 months and i would rather be miserable than in a state of unconscious hyper enthusiasm, which left me feeling worse. I think this drug is more for the people around us than for ourselves. On the outside we appear happy and enthusiastic ( we become tolerable) but we are faced with lame side effects and confused and desperate state of mind.
