    Fluoxetine for Aggressiveness; Depression

    On my third try, I finally managed to stay tuned and not stop because of the side effect. Side effects: heavy sweating, nervousness, insomnia, chattering like a waterfall (I’m usually always silent). I took fluoxetine in the morning (took the smallest doses because they work for me and reduce the side effects). In addition, after a few weeks, I got Trazodone for evening consumption. I was skeptical at first – 2 anti-depressants at once ?! And from then on no side effects anymore. No more sweaty and finally, after many years, I could sleep like a baby. During the day I am in a good mood. However, I still can not really feel positive feelings. But good mood is already enough for me 🙂 I’m sociable, feel no extreme hatred, am no longer aggressive and fall in heavy fatalities not so deep. By the next day at the latest I feel completely okay again. I look to the future again, I have plans for the future, I do not want to kill myself anymore. P.S. I am very overweight and do not take the tablets. And my tip to all have the strong side effect: many doctors pop in a same high doses. I only started with 5 mg and take only 15 – 20 mg a day after weeks and that helps! At higher dose, the side effects were unbearable and therefore I had previously stopped taking it several times.

    Side effects: Nervousness; Insomnia; Sweat

    Fluoxetine for Thyroid function under; Depression

    Take the drug L-thyroxine beautiful for a few years have had from almost no side effects only for a long time I have a sleep problems or not because I do not know if that comes from the tablet and for a few days I have such a funny stinging in the head Of course, I have never been able to get that from him, but that’s exactly what I did not. At the moment I can not say very much about the drug fluoxetine because I have been taking it for 2 weeks only for 2 days now every day every day I get sweating hands that is definitely a side effect of the tablet.

    Side effects: Sweat

    Fluoxetine for Post-traumatic stress disorder

    *** General *** Fluoxetine is an antidepressant (SSRI). However, it is also used in diseases other than depression. For example, in case of obsessive-compulsive disorder, bulimia or posttraumatic stress disorder. If you take Fluoxetine, you should not take St. John’s Wort at the same time as it can cause bad interactions. Pregnant women should not take fluoxetine because it can be dangerous for the child. *** Personal Experiences *** I get along well with this medication. The most important thing for me is that it helps against the symptoms of my PTSD (depression, anxiety, flashbacks). For that I also like to accept certain side effects. The side effects are with me trembling hands, weight loss (but I can live well with that) and increased sweating especially at night. As I said, this drug is effective and well tolerated.

    Side effects: Loss in weight; Tremble; Sweat

    Fluoxetine for Drive disorders; Depression

    I took Fluoxetine 40mg for a few months at a time and noticed as a positive effect that I was in a better mood and above all relaxed in everyday life. In between times I have the medi. stopped and realized that I had felt better with fluoxetine. So I took it back up to 3 weeks ago and then lowered it to 20mg by agreement with my doctor and down to 10mg since today. I would like to try again without it, because I have a strong feeling in my hands (especially at night) and there is paresthesia as a side effect and I can currently find no other cause. Furthermore, the sweating sometimes gets on my nerves. In addition, all in all, I have also gained 20 KG and now in various forums read that there is more often in patients as a side effect. I did not know that, because it is not in the leaflet and my doctor said, you decrease rather.

    Side effects: Sensation disorders; Sweat

    Fluoxetine for Burnout syndrome; Depression

    After diagnosis of depression caused by burn-out treatment by 20mg fluoxetine. After 7 months no significant improvement in symptoms, especially the physical, noticeable. Falling asleep, very lively dreams, nocturnal sweating, vertigo, lack of drive, difficulty concentrating, tiredness, nausea right after taking the drug. Weight loss also not recorded;). My doctor had actually promised me that about 1.5 weeks after the start of receipt, I would feel as if a switch was put in me, so that in the morning, for example, I could easily get out of bed. Unfortunately, the desired effect did not materialize and now I am switching to another drug to control the depression.

    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

    Tavor I take only in an emergency! (I have tabs 2.0 and take 1-6 mg) In the beginning I felt so bad that I took it every day for about 2 weeks. Side effects I have just noticed that the next day, my hands were trembling. The tablets work wonders. However, I know they are addictive, so I do not want to recommend these tablets to anyone. I can handle the pills and always be aware that they are addictive. Therefore, I only take them in an emergency. I had now 2 weeks or longer, no in the house and that was easy. You should always pay attention to yourself during such applications! I take fluoxetine for half a year. (In the first few weeks I took 10 mg, meanwhile 20 mg) The first 2-3 weeks I had, after the morning intake, severe nausea and no more hunger throughout the day. I have increased, but the reason was not the tablets! What I notice today is that I sweat a lot through the pills. Especially in places that always sweat sweaty anyway, so the face. Nowhere else have I dared to go, it was so bad. Now I always take the pills in the evening, because usually I sweat extremely hard the first hours after taking them. Whether fluoxetine really helps me I’m not sure. I notice that I’m on speed, if I increase the intake times. Urge to move, wriggle, teeth bite on each other. Therefore, I leave it at the 20 mg. I also noticed that I talk more with other people. Especially with strangers. Partially without dot and comma, without thinking too much. I’m usually very calm.

    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.

    As described in the instruction leaflet, I had two weeks strong side effects such as headache !!! gen.Unwohls.Panikattacken, anxiety in increased form, increased transpiration, restlessness, especially at night (difficulty falling asleep), dry mouth and especially the tremor when speaking (ehlich frog in the throat ). As I said after two weeks sounded this NW and I feel much better since then. Come with 10mg Fluox and do not want to raise, even if it is sometimes urgently needed. But I am a little careful with the high dose and glad that I through! (minimum dose !!!) 10mg back to normal everyday life and can do my job without anxiety. Lg to all PS .: Thanks to the drug

    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 Depression

    After a few weeks and a dose of 30mg, Fluoxetine helped me to slow down. I had less fear and howling cramps. The hole I often fell in was not so deep anymore. For this I have been suffering from fluid stool / diarrhea for weeks and I sweat a lot more than before. At the beginning of the intake, I became very nervous and bitchy, but that has fallen to a normal level.

    Side effects: Nervousness; Sweat

    Fluoxetine for Dizziness; Anxiety disorders

    I got fluoxetine for another drug (with a similar effect as it is said not to increase). I am overweight and therefore this motivation was important enough to change the drug. Unfortunately, I have noticed that since then some side effects have set in and I had no improvement over the previous preparation in terms of my dizziness and my associated anxiety disorder. The side effects started with daily heat attacks and sweats on the head, but in which the body was freezing cold. These have meanwhile settled down and only occur about every 3 days. In addition, I have an extreme need for sleep and rest, I sleep as soon as I have the opportunity. I dream very real and intense and often wake up at night. I think I would accept that, the drug would help me with my initial discomfort, but if it helps, it will only slightly. I’ll probably talk again with my neurologist, who has recommended to me after my complaint about the drug (sweat after 6 weeks) instead of half a tablet a whole. Unfortunately, it does not work (another 8-10 weeks ingestion) …
