    Fluoxetine for Dizziness; Depression

    It started with a dizzy spell that took me straight to the hospital and started an odyssey from hospital to hospital. I then came to the Neurological Outpatient Department of the Charite and was subsequently hired with the above-mentioned drugs. I take 12 mg of beta and 40 mg of fluoxetine daily. I feel very well, rarely have seizures, but I have to say that I did a behavioral therapy for two years. I can live fully again and am very well-adjusted, able to get along well with my illness. Do not give up even with Meniere’s disease, you can participate in lifeSide effects: I have a headache (but not dramatically) every now and then and I have gained weight, which is not really insignificant! But otherwise I am really well, they wanted to send me on incapacity pension I have defied my illness and have even made an education and go back to work!

    Side effects: Headache; Increase in weight

    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

    Take fluoxetine for 1.5 years. Reason: anxiety disorder (social anxiety, claustrophobia, emetophobia) My first experience with an antidepressant. Started with 20mg, reduced because of too strong side effects after 3 days and then slowly rebuilt to 20 mg. Take now for over a year 20mg daily in the morning. The first weeks severe side effects: nausea, loss of appetite, severe lack of concentration (I was actually completely beside me), severe headache, forced yawning, dry mouth, tiredness, night sweats. Better after about 2-3 weeks. Conclusion after 1.5 years: I can go back to work and work. Emotions, however, have fallen by the wayside. I’m pretty much indifferent, I do not feel like doing anything, I can not get up to sport or doing business anymore, I’m generally not interested in anything. I’m almost always tired and sleep 9 to 10 hours – in the afternoon I’m often so sleepy that I have to lie down. In addition to the fatigue and indifference: night sweats, sexual aversion, orgasm inability. At the end of the year I would like to slowly reduce my dose and let it escape. I would like to – despite all the fears – once again feel something like enthusiasm …

    I’ve been taking fluoxetine for almost three months now and coping well with it. It is important that you adjust the dose indivudell also adapts the daily. I did not get along well with 40 mg in the morning, because it caused me considerable side effects, such as headache and blurred vision, the limitation of sensory perception and the onset of nausea were already immense. with another distribution of the dose in the morning and at noon or in the evening I was obviously better. mentally I benefited from the drug. Despondency and forcible ideas became apparent and I became more active again. What has remained of side effect is a disturbed sleep rhythm, sometimes muscle twitching at night and heat flashes. I find that bearable, but I’m psychologically more stable and can work on the causes better.

    Fluoxetine for Adh syndrome

    It’s my first antidepressant (at 48, I’m proud of myself). I was a bit anxious about the side effects in the first 3 days (1/2 tablet). Headache; I am used, I have taken no countermeasures. Nausea; I just take this way. Extreme loss of appetite; Should I complain about it? Weight loss; I consider that a reward. I’ll start celebratingHooray! Fatigue / yawn; Shit … me on it! Despite all complaint I’m traveling daily. Impairment of concentration; I am special caution driving a car. At the household and working life (8 St./Tag) can be something to remember. Impairment of thought; I do not take anything personally anymore. The feeling that everything is too bright or that I speak too loud. Despite all side effects, I drive at least 35Km car every day. The doctor had me confident, I could do it.

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    I have 10mg at the beginning and go up to 20mg in 2 days. The first days were hell, I was tired all day, but restless. In the evening I could not sleep and was still restless. At the gym I could not feel anything because my muscles were incredibly weak and shaky. And with stress I became only more depressed including suicidal thoughts. Meanwhile, the side effects are mitigated, but the sleep problems and depression with suicidal thoughts are still there.

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    After long deliberation, I have decided to take my medication for an anxiety disorder. In the beginning I had a severe headache, but disappeared after about 4 days. Now I take the drug for a week and I notice how I am a little more balanced. Nevertheless, in the morning I still have massive anxiety, but they are limited. Except for dizziness and tiredness with twists, I have no side effects. Let’s see how well the drug works in a month.

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    My depression has not improved comprehensibly. The side effects of the drug and which of the depression is difficult to say. Side effects were: Constantly tired, impotent, weak / weak muscle, dizzy, stupid / unable to concentrate, balance disorders, numbness throughout the body, water retention, increases in frustration, because no strength and no drive for sport and friends was there. No desire to meet people, bad feeling of indifference / feeling cold. Almost no more receiving in sex, let alone an orgasm. Much more. After raising the dose to 40mg I had itchy rash / hives and my eyes suddenly swelled. Eyes / face so far swollen as well, an allergic reaction seems to have been triggered by the fluoxetine. Will sneak off with 10mg from today, whereby I would prefer to take it immediately no more.

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    I’ve been taking fluoxetine for almost a year against my moderate depression. At first I took 20 mg, I think for three weeks. Since I did not feel it, I increased to 40 mg. At this dosage, I felt more stable for another two weeks at times, but my mood fluctuated throughout the day. My doctor said that said that the drug was right for me, but the dosage was still too low. I increased to 60 mg. After about 10 days, I had a few days extremely good mood, but that put down relatively quickly. My mood stabilized. I became less sensitive and became more aware of things. Although I did not do more than before, but no longer accused me of this inaction. The drug was not euphoric (only the first few days), but built a kind of protective barrier around me, made me more relaxed. My mild social phobia became weaker. After three months, I reduced to 50 mg to find the lowest dose for me. It worked. Now, after almost a year, the effect seems to be weakening. I cry more often without a real trigger, am again easier to unsettle and often just want to pull the blanket over my head. I am not as depressed as I was before starting fluoxetine, but often distressed, self-doubting, impotent (I would reproach myself), irritable and sensitive. I will now increase to 60 mg again. Side effects: From 60 mg, I was much less hungry and also decreased. Now, with 50 mg, I have gained a few pounds. I’m not sure if that’s because of the drug;) I feel dizzy at times, especially when I’m getting up or something. I am often shaky and jittery. At first I had orgasmic disorders, but that has subsided after a few weeks. I have a headache more often than before. Also, my short-term memory does not seem to work so well anymore, I’m more bullish than before and forget halfway what I wanted. From time to time I had the feeling my heart would race. Since I do not know this differently from the depression and in general always slept a lot, I do not particularly like how much I sleep. But it’s probably 9-12 hours.

    Fluoxetine for Post-traumatic stress disorder

    The first few weeks very severe headache and the constant feeling that the body is collapsing. Descriptive tiredness and at night I can not sleep without sleeping aid. However, all this was harmless: The worst is a massive increase in depression, including acute suicidality. In the fourth week, the headache has subsided, but more heart pains occur. The psychiatrist only prescribed me the medication with the indication that it will increase my drive and is not expected to gain weight. As usual, possible NWs were concealed. The suicidality, for which the Medikamnet after research, is very notorious, I was, of course, concealed …

    Fluoxetine for Bulimia; Depression

    Fluoxetine 1A Pharma: Fast action with good tolerability. Mood was quick, life was surrounded by a positive glow. Of course, it does not cure bulimia / depression, but it helps to stay alive. The bingeing in bulimia can stop it conditionally. They became less with me, but did not stop altogether. Overall, highly recommended. Fluoxetine Hexal: Not well tolerated at all, bad suicidal thoughts, worsening of depressive phases, barely any good mood, cramps, headaches. Conclusion: shit! I got on well with the preparation from 1A Pharma, but I had to sell Hexal again because it only made things worse. In both NO weight gain! But I got bad constipation, which in turn led to reliance on laxatives.

    Side effects: Suicidal ideation; Headache

    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 …)

    Fluoxetine for Obsessive compulsive disorder; Bulimia; Depression

    At the beginning of the intake, especially severe headaches and nausea occurred, which disappeared completely after 3 weeks. I also had sleep problems, both falling asleep and waking up too early (around 4 or 5 in the morning). This problem also disappeared after about 4 weeks. Slightly decreased appetite and weight loss were noted. Further problems during the intake did not occur. The effect occurred after about 3-4 weeks (increase in motivation, fewer bingeing, easing of the compulsive acts).
