    Fluoxetine for Thyroid function under; Depression

    I’ve been taking fluoxetine for several years now, and attempts at weaning have quickly given way to renewed depression. I fluoxetine very strong terms of the following side effects suspected that other anti-depressants (sertraline and Cymbalta) are also specified as such, but not for my medication \ \ Fluoxelich: – permantes thirst and greatly increased water demand. I drink three to four liters of water a day and the blood levels still indicate a very low water content of the body. Dry mouth is still the slightest problem. -before 2.5 years was observed hypothyroidism and Hashimoto with me ever since, however I take 50 ng Euthyrox daily .. Well just an underactive was found again, so I’ll have to increase the dose. I have a strong feeling that the thyroid gland is not working properly because of the permanent intake of fluoxetine, but I feel like I’m in a vicious circle because I can not do without it. – Hypothyroidism can be a major reason not to get pregnant, which unfortunately has been an issue for me for 2.5 years. – Meanwhile, I have quite often a strong \ Everything I do not care mood \, which is better than a depression, but the beautiful feelings I used to have out of the depression, I unfortunately can not even feel. Who can report similar experiences or even have ideas for solutions?

    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 …

    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 Depression

    Nausea and diarrhea at first, which was bearable. Slight increase of panick attacks inner restlessness. After about 3 weeks, these side effects were gone, the effect occurred so after 4-6 weeks, then increased again from 20 mg to 40 mg. Then again had slight stomach and intestinal problems but only a few days. Later, as side effects, I had frequent yawning, dry mouth / throat, muscle tremors and muscle twitching before falling asleep. From the beginning I had Ein- and sleep problems that are not completely gone but to endure. In summary, I can say that the side effects were or are and have not affected me as much as the depression and anxiety. The positive effect has so far predominated. Very disgusting I found fluoxetine from Hexal, which dissolve immediately in the mouth and have a very bitter taste, sometimes they stuck in my throat. Now I take fluoxetine neuraxpharm film-coated tablets, which are better.

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    Due to the fact that I only take this medication for 3 weeks, I can not record a detailed report on it. I take 20mg daily. I can say that already after this short time a change for me is noticeable. This manifests itself in a certain ease in talking, which is otherwise a big problem for me. However, there is more and more indifference, which can lead to far-reaching consequences in my current situation, where I write my final exam tomorrow. Among the countless possible side effects, I can only complain of mild nausea, stomach ache in the first 7 days and a persistent dry mouth, which I believe so it can live.

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    I take 20mg Fluoxitin for three months. The first three days were very tough. Sweats, total insomnia, irritability, dizziness, diarrhea, nausea. After a few days it went and I found only slight dry mouth and libido loss. Meanwhile, everything has settled down, I have no side effects and I feel much better. I am more active, I can get up better in the morning, I am calmer in stress and generally have a much better mood. Fingernails grow again for the first time in years – I used to nibble on them before stress. This medicine helped me!

    Fluoxetine for Migraine; Depression

    Side effects Saroten: tiredness, water retention, weight gain, dry mouth. Fluoxetine: side effects only at the beginning of the intake, meanwhile no side effects except weight gain. Fluoxetine enhances the effects of Saroten, so I stay at a dose of 25 mg Saroten a day (taken in the evening), with a fluoxetine dose of 40 mg a day (taken in the morning).

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    first opipramol and fluoxitin. mainly against panic attacks. total impotence, dry mouth, at first aggravating the attacks. – then citalopram. terrible aggravation of depression, extreme dizziness, anxiety creep downright physically cold my back up, muscle twitching in the legs. discontinued by the doctor. replaced by moclobemide, almost no effect, no side effect. After that, I spent half a year in Ireland, where a doctor suggested to try cymbalta. had NO side effect except sleep disturbance, which I had previously sporadically and already very dry mouth with disgusting taste in the mouth. Since then, I also take cymbalta in Germany, I am thrilled. Panickattacken almost zero, no side effects except those described, no orgasm disorders. However, my psychiatrist cymbalta has to prescribe me every second recipe as a private prescription, because thanks to the health reform, it no longer fits into her budget. and THIS is a very blatant side effect, especially since I am unemployed. Depression still present but toned down, hope to find definitive help through behavioral therapy. but my main problem of panic seems to be very well handled by cymbalta. I am excited about the drug!
