    Fluoxetine for Aggressiveness; Depression

    I have intense dreams, every day … besides strong hair loss and hardly any desire for sex; I used to have multiple orgasms, now it’s very hard to get one at all … otherwise it often makes me tired and I do not think so much anymore. It has become easier

    Fluoxetine for Migraine; Pain (chronic); Depression

    I switched from venlafaxine to fluoxetine 3 months ago. For 6 weeks, the drug conversion is over. Since I’m finally lucky and no longer sweat like crazy, what came from the Venlafaxin, especially at night gossip wet every night, and then I have the problem I suddenly get all shitty skin. What I do not know, because even in my puberty I had hardly any pimples. Apparently the pores were so well-cleaned by sweating the last four years, so flawless skin. But I have also had abdominal pain and headaches very frequently ever since and have been struggling with diarrhea since the time of change. First thought, my irritable bowel is simply active again, but daily for weeks, where I usually have alternating constipation and diarrhea. Do I have to clarify maybe more closely. Hair loss since the conversion also very extreme. I have less appetite since fluoxetine, yet unfortunately not decreased, so rather would slow down the metabolism. But not too. Since there are completely different antidepressants, I’m still satisfied. I am tired at the moment … but can also have other reasons. And so I have through the combination of my Medis – Abtiepileptika, antidepressants, which also make everyone tired, anyway, always with problems.

    Side effects: Hair loss; Headache

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    I have been given fluoxetine because of severe depression, social phobia and hurting myself. Effect: I was in a good mood throughout the day, sometimes almost hyperactive. I was not depressed or sad. Side effect: severe tiredness, I slept from 14:00 to 20:00 (again intensifies depression), suddenly the effect is no longer felt and the evening and the night became agony, slight weight loss, large pupils, slight shaking, hair loss , in the beginning strong, long-lasting period. Is good to recommend, if the problem is in the morning and needs support for the day! I, on the other hand, found out that I need something in the evening!

    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 …)
