    Fluoxetine for Burnout syndrome; Drive disorders

    I can only warn against drinking alcohol in conjunction with this medicine. I had no side effects after three weeks (20 mg a day), except dry mouth and flatulence. I also did not feel a positive effect. I was prescribed the stuff because of burnout and listlessness. I’m not a drinker, but I’m still drinking and never had problems with the alcohol. After the side effects had subsided, I mixed a few drinks (Southern with Coke) on a weekend, I would have preferred that. Normally I would have been pleasantly tipsy but suddenly I just fell over like a tree. My wife was shocked and shook me awake, I was completely gone. Then I got up with her help and immediately turned over again. I was chalk white and made it to bed. She wanted to call the ambulance, but that was too embarrassing for me. My wife did not sleep all night terrified and constantly checked my pulse. The next morning I could not remember anything. The memory of this event came gradually. Not thinking what could have happened to me if I had not been home. I’ve dropped the stuff and I want to warn everyone who has to take it. Avoid alcohol, even smaller amounts, if you have to take the stuff.

    Fluoxetine for Drive disorders; Depression

    I took fluoxetine for a year to get a grip on my depression and my diminished drive. I started with 10mg, so relatively ‘soft’, immediately got a few hours after taking the side effects. It started with nausea and dizziness. i had a beer with a friend that evening and almost fell over. I just made it home. alcohol was taboo since then (after about 2 months I drank slowly and carefully again a bit of alcohol). I could hardly ride any more, got panic attacks, respiratory problems, circulatory problems – but massive. the appetite was reduced relatively strong (at least in the beginning, -4kg), taste changes, etc. extreme dreams, very filmy and confused, which I found rather interesting. the side effects sounded out relatively quickly. Only for alcohol did I react badly for a relatively long time. extremely fast drunk, so much that I immediately fell asleep, or gave myself and then fell asleep, bad headache, total film break (I woke up and knew who, where nor, nor what I was) – so be careful with the enjoyment of alcohol the dose was then increased to 20mg after about 3 months, and then 40mg 4 weeks later. this happened after consultation with my psychiatrist, and on my own request, since I hardly felt any improvement. with 40mg it was a bit better, but the effect was quite minimal. After less than a year, I often forgot to take the intake, consumed relatively high doses of amphetamine (speed) to wake me up, and to be focused. Of course, I was aware that drugs in a therapy are absolutely taboo. I talked about it with my therapist and they talked about ADHD because I did not consume speed to go to parties and be high. I used it as I said to be focused. she suggested ritalin to me, but not really prescribable in germany, and alone the ADHD test at a doctor costs around 250 euro. complete nonsense of my view. (I’m studying psychology myself, so I’m not a non-specialist) then I was proposed edronax. I take this now for 2 weeks. So far, I can not say anything except cold feeling in arms and legs. Conclusion on the subject fluoxetine – no to little effect. possibly due to misdiagnosis.

    Fluoxetine for Drive disorders; Depression

    My depression disappeared with the drug after about three weeks. However, the side effects made the drug useless, because after taking a tablet, I was only tired and slept almost the whole day. At the beginning of the treatment and on discontinuation of the drug, I had withdrawal symptoms at night, such as nightmares and heavy sweating, which could be detected for about three days each. With alcohol, the effect of the drug was enormously enhanced. I have never been so happy and happy.

    Fluoxetine for Eating disorder; Drive disorders; Depression

    Fluoxetine / Prozac: I have taken this drug intermittently for several years, between 0 and 60mg. Against fears and obsessions it helps very well, on the whole it makes me more stable and emotionless, which I do not feel as negative. To test the effect, I have taken up to 60mg, but I was still driveless, if satisfied. At the beginning, I lost my appetite, but that soon disappeared. Overall, it slows down my metabolism (I think), I’m increasing faster. (Compared to other depressants but not bad). Fluoxetine reduces the sexual desire, but at low dose this settles down to some extent. Other side effects during the first two weeks were abdominal pain, headache, hair loss. The good thing about Fluoxetine is the high half-life of the drug, it stays in the body for a long time and it’s not that bad if you forget to take it. Also, it can be easier to slink it. !! This drug is dangerous in connection with alcohol. Alcohol and fluoxetine reinforce each other and so I am euphoric and completely detached by alcohol but also incredibly fast drunk which can change very quickly quite quickly. Also, the initial side effects have again shown very clearly. Too much alcohol means for the next day: anxiety, confusion, Depersonalisierungsgefühle, hair loss etc … Alcohol should not actually drink during treatment, in moderation, but my doctor has granted me, however, this measure with Fluoxetine is very very very low . !! Solvex / Reboxetine: Drive boosting! Although medications work differently for each one of them, I take at most a quarter of my 4mg tablet (and not every day) as it is extremely effective. I am much more structured, able to concentrate better and less hungry. I suddenly manage to keep my apartment clean and tidy; D strangely, I am also strangely better at my reflection (usually having a totally distorted self-perception) and greater sexual desire. Too much of the drug (and that’s already 2mg for me!) And side effects right at the beginning of the treatment: aggression, irritability, confusion, palpitations, pimples, sleep disorders (constant awakening, waking too early …)
