It shouldn't, but you do need to ensure that any medication you're taking is fully disclosed.
You can take anything with fluoxetine, but make sure not to get a "PM" formula because of the sleeping medication.
I would advise that you not do it until you talk to your doctor or pharmacist. Chantix is known to have some serious side effects, and before you take it, tell your doctor or pharmacist about other medications you take-- these medications could interact negatively with the Chantix and cause problems for you.
If taking Prozac made you lose weight, then yes, you may regain the weight once you go off of it.
From safefetus.com: Prozac "Inadequate human studies, but suggested possible association with increased risk of first trimester spontaneous abortions, and exposure to the drug late in pregnancy may cause perinatal side effects including prematurity, small for date, persistent pulmonary hypertension, poor neonatal adaptation"
six forms of addiction can be gambolling, over eating, surfing the internet, smoking, acohol, sex and even money. there are so many addictions people can become addicted to absolute anything.
Most antidepressants cause weight gain, however Prozac is known to cause weight loss in some people which is why it is also prescribed for obesity. Answer Weight loss is a known side effect of Wellbutrin (bupropion) products. In some people, Prozac (fluoxetine) can cause mild weight loss at the beginning of treatment. Weight loss is possible with other SSRI's as well as Effexor and Cymbalta, however they also have the potential to cause weight gain… Read More
Yes, it is not uncommon for anti-depressants to "poop out" after taking them long term. It is not that you are resistant; your body has adjusted to the medication by changing the number of receptors involved in how the medication works. Talk to your doctor - he/she may increase the dose or switch you to another drug.
It varies from person to person, however, most of them that I have seen are about one eighth to three sixteenths inch deep. Some have been a quarter or more, but I think that would be a bit of overkill. Your piercer (if at all reputable) will be able to place it perfectly for your body. Too deep a piercing and you run a higher risk of infection and ultimately rejection and too shallow and… Read More
No. There are studies that show that is actually safe and recommended. I take the two together. http://journals.lww.com/jaacap/Abstract/2005/09000/Atomoxetine_Alone_or_Combined_With_Fluoxetine_for.13.aspx Feel well.
These 2 meds are in two completely different classes. Prozac is a SSRI (serotonin reuptake inhibitor) while Concerta is methylphenidate, a stimulant--acts on the dopamine in your brain. Concerta is essentially the same as Ritalin, only it's an extended release version. Prozac is used to treat depression/anxiety, among other uses, while Concerta is used to treat ADHD/ADD. That said, depression/anxiety can have symptoms that mimic the symptoms of ADHD. Lack of focus, concentration, irritability...to name… Read More
I'm not sure if it is a right treatment for adhd. I've been on it long before I found out that I have Severe ADD/ADHD and that was in March 2010. I am 55 years old. My Dr. actually wants to take it down now. I am also on 54mg of Concerta. Family says I'm dumber now. I say I just do not have to try so hard anymore. Does this mean that if I… Read More
It shouldn't be, Prozac can have serious side effects to someone who has ADHD.
Cigarettes, Alcohol etc.
no, not if you wean yourself off 25mg a week at a time. also don't ever ever take the new generic for topamax. i was seriously suicidal after being on it for 1 month. I got off it and was fine.
The side effects of snorting percocet are the same as if you injested them. The only other differ from eating them and snorting them is that most come with acetimenophine (tylenol) and with that it burns like hell the first line you do. And it doesnt taste very good.

6/6/08 I currently take 10mg. Prozac a day and my Dr. has prescribed me Ambien for the last month and have also been given Ambien CR. No side effects other than the Ambien products working less and less as you use it.
You can not take Wellbutrin and Prozac together. Both of these medications are known as ssri's and work in the same fashion.
no, theres a huge risk of serotonin syndrome, which is fatal. what is serotonin syndrome
anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, weight gain, or unwanted head feelings are the side effects of prozac, but not hair loss. If it has happened it should be for another cause.
Risperidone (Risperdal) is an antipsychotic medication, and as such, there are are many side effects including those that effect motor contol. "People taking antipsychotic drugs are at risk of developing certain side effects known as extrapyramidal symptoms. These symptoms can include things such as repetitive, involuntary muscle movements (such as lip smacking) or an undeniable urge to be moving constantly. Fortunately, there is help for these symptoms. Let your healthcare provider know right away if… Read More
The 3 pills will be taken within 1 hour, Eg. 1 at 12:00, 1 at 12:30, and the last 1 at 1:00.
I currently take 80mg straterra, 70mg vyvanse (a speed-derived drug like adderall), and 10mg lexapro (an ssri like paxil, luvox, etc) and it is working great! before I started vyvanse, I was taking straterra with lexapro and adderall: about 40 mg of adderall daily. taking too much adderall caused me to be very anxious, self-conscious, and almost paranoid. when I reduced adderall to about 20 mg/day, as well as when I switched over to vyvanse… Read More
Neither Prozac nor Strattera are uppers or downers. Prozac works on serotonin, and Strattera works on norepinephrine, two of our brain cocktails. Both drugs level out their respective neurotransmitters; nothing is added or removed, just made to work more efficiently. Prozac may inhibit some of the activity by Strattera; as for being safe, however, this is for a doctor to decide and monitor. Each case is different.
If you are using Prozac and Strattera together, you need to talk to your doctor, as this combination can cause serious side-effects. Read your Patient Insert that came with your Straterra, it covers the use of Prozac and Straterra together. Hope that helps. Concerta is being passed around my school. . .most people think that if you take it you will be hyper and more alert. . .this may be the case in some people… Read More
I have both epilepsy and a type of autism called Asperger's Syndrome. For the epilepsy I take the 500mg depakote. I also take the 1mg risperdal pill for controlling my attitude and help prevent anxiety. Taking both together gives me no problems with them interacting together. Another medication I'm on for anxiety is the 20mg pill Lexapro and it has no interactions with the other 2. To be sure that your medications are safe together… Read More
Withdrawals of Prozac may start within eight hours of stopping the medication. Withdrawal symptoms may last for six to eight weeks.
It depends on your doctor's recomendations. Prozac is a stronger and different form of medicine, and you will not act the same way you did when you move to Welbutrin. It is safe to take Welbutrin and Prozac at the same time. Even when used together they work on two different parts of the brain. Welburtin is used more for depression, and Prozac is used more for Anxiety. If you are more anxious than depressed… Read More
no you can not do that it will lead to serious effect inclunding death
You would need to speak to you doctor before you stop taking Prozac. You will need to start decreasing your dosage under supervision. It is possible to experience withdrawal symptoms and should discuss anything that concerns you with your doctor.
You might be depressed and can not help it this kind of thing is hard to tell, sometimes people have a chemical embalace and can not help it You may be suffering from depression or just feeling that your life has no purpose. All of our lives have a purpose. You are valuable; remember that, please. (John 3:16) Are you in good health? How about your 'mental' health? Don't be ashamed to get a check… Read More
Nothing, Except for a bad taste, hard to breathe through your nose, and a burning throat. It has no recreational effect.
Snorting Prozac and other antidepressants can lead to irregular heartbeat, nausea, and coma. Death does sometimes occur with an overdose.
you shouldn't take, try, or mix any drugs.
I have been on 20 mgs of Prozac for 15 years and have done fine with combining it with many things. However, I ended up in the emergency room one evening after taking an over the counter hoodia suppliment. I thought I was going to go into cardiac arrest. I would not combine antidepressents with certain herbal caffeine supplements. Then again, everyones chemistry is different. Just be careful.
you should be fine.
9 to 12 days but if like me its making you worse even at 20mg stop taking it. Doctors try to make you keep taking it to hope things get better, but they don't. If your taking a higher dose about a month. Keep taking it if it is helping but its not for me.
I am not a doctor but I would strongly advise not to. I really don't think that's the proper way to take it and there have been a lot of reports of negative side effects already from unproperly administrating prozac.
I recommend learning the English language and trying again.
I take them together at the same time. I have not experienced anything adverse thus far. It has been about two or three months.
If you don't abuse the medicine, then it won't make you high.
Technically, most drugs that you take will hit your liver eventually. Your liver and kidneys play a part in the filtration of your body, which means that toxins are dealt with in both of those places. Alcohol definitely takes a large toll on your liver, as you have probably been shown or told. Some drugs have more effect on the liver than others, such as things like marijuanna or cigarettes, which instead have diverse effects… Read More
There are no known drug to drug interactions between these two medications, making them safe to take together. Make sure to contact you primary care provider prior to taking these two medications to ensure that it is safe.
It should be fine. Wellbutrin is commonly combined with ssri's like Prozac to augment them in the case of treatment resistant depression, and depakote xanax and klonopin all affect a different neurotransmitter system. I was on wellbutrin 300 mg, lexapro (an ssri) 10 mg and depakote at one point and was fine. Check with your doctor and check in a drug interaction checker like on webmd. But it seems redunant and possibley dangerous combining xanax… Read More
While this would vary slightly from person to person, it should probably take about a maximum of two weeks for it to get up to the full effect. Your doctor should've started you off at 20mg or so (a low dosage) so the effects might not be entirely noticeable at first.
A lethal dose of Prozac is anywhere between 1200 to 2000 milligrams. Prozac is the brand name for the drug Fluoxetine.
you can, but it will not get high and will most likely be very unpleasant and mess up your veins.
No. Prozac is an SSRI but not a benzodiazepine. Benzodiazepines are medicines like Xanax.
Hopefully 100mg As I have that much inside me right now
Lithium is the old 'standard' for Bi-polar treatment. Lithium is not well tolerated in many people , however, and generally will keep someone on a 'lower' than even keel.. though you will not fluctuate. However, there are many other medications for treatment of Bi-polar disorder. Benzodiazepines are used for Mania. Typical Antidepressants are used for general treatment of the disorder. Calcium Channel blockers can be used -- (Blood pressure meds). Even anti psychotics and anticonvulsants… Read More
Up to 2 weeks.
It can take a couple of weeks for the Prozac to get to therapeutic levels where the effects become apparent.
I dont have an answer for you here, but I've recently started Prozac (Fluoxetine) and my cycle's been a little hard to follow. Maybe just new stuff entering your system messes up the cycle a little?
it all depends on how mutch you taken what the mg dose was and also how long you have been taking it for
Taking Prozac and Remeron together can result in serotonin syndrome, a rare but serious condition that can be fatal. Symptoms may include mental status changes such as irritability, altered consciousness, confusion, hallucinations, and coma; autonomic dysfunction such as tachycardia, hyperthermia, diaphoresis, shivering, blood pressure lability, and mydriasis; neuromuscular abnormalities such as hyperreflexia, myoclonus, tremor, rigidity, and ataxia; and gastrointestinal symptoms such as abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. They should not be taken together.
It totally dependes on the person. I know of people who love each of those. I think Prozac is great for OCD and GAD (generalized anxiety). One will not be better than the other, just better for you and your needs.
There are at least two significantly different types of managed care: 1. Case manager assesses unique needs of the client, refers client to the best possible services, monitors progress, and makes sure all the client's needs are met. 2. The usual notion of managed care: Services are only available from the lowest bidder who gets a flat payment regardless of how much service is needed or furnished. Managed care uses capitation and related finance mechanisms… Read More
Yes. Higher doses, e.g., 80mg, have been shown to help in the treatment of bulimia nervosa. Some anorexics have also been helped by Prozac, but because of it's potentially appetite-suppressant effect, it must be used with caution if at all in anorexic patients.
There is no problem with the combination. Fatigue and weight gain can be from the lithium the Prozac or from the depression they treat. I suggest discussing it with your doctor.

This is quite variable. Some patients report improvement in as little as a few days. Most patients note improvement in symptoms over a 2-4 week period, after the increase has been initiated.
These two are not contraindicated together. They may be taken together (unless a particular individual has not tolerated this combination - which is rare).
Prozac ingredient is Fluoxetine Hydrochloride.
You would have to be very careful about the Abilify dosage. Abilify is metabolized by an enzyme, CYP 2D6, both Wellbutrin and Prozac inhibits that enzyme. This will result in increased levels of Abilify.
Treatment of male infertility includes addressing known reversible factors first; for example, discontinuing any medication known to have an effect on spermatogenesis or ejaculation, as well as decreasing alcohol intake, and.
May cause heartburn, nausea, and vomiting; may also cause drowsiness, dry mouth, or mild depression.
Its like Zoloft its a pill that will work overtime not instantaniesly
It's not so much a matter of reaction as it is efficacy. Alcohol is a depressant and Prozac is an antidepressant. Excessive alcohol use/abuse counteracts the antidepressant effects of Prozac. Basically, it will not work as well, if at all. Also, when there is a reaction, individuals who are on Prozac and use alcohol can experience intoxication more easily and readily. As a result, poor impulsivity and judgment can occur.
One should consult with a doctor or pharmacist concerning potential drug interactions. However, from available literature, it appears that there is no expected adverse reaction between clonazepam and Prozac.
Prozac is a brand name for the drug fluoxetine, which is an SSRI (Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitor), a class of antidepressant. It is used in the treatment of major depressive disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), bulimia nervosa, panic disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder.

You should never give a cat any prescription that's not their own. If you have given the cat Prozac take it to the vet immediately. If they're not peeing at all there could be kidney failure.
Prozac is a drug that helps with anxiety and depression.
No, however, eat a lot of yogurt to keep yourself safe.
According to the website I looked at it should be safe -- but I recommend talking with your doctor before you start taking any sort of herbal products on top of prescription medicines. The doctor needs to know every medication you are taking, not just the prescription ones. Also remember that herbs have side effects like any medication. If you begin to experience any unusual effects, stop the basil at once and talk to your… Read More
Yes but it's normally highly dependent upon the persons root symptoms. Adhd etc. And so a good doctor wouldn't recommend the two together as the interactions may heighten ones root symptoms
A doctor would need to prescribe all the medicines together to help with social anxiety. Usually a person only needs one or two pills to help with anxiety issues. Speak with your healthcare provider for more details.
The answer to that is that no-one knows for certain. Although many drugs are okay after their expiration dates, as noted by Harvard Health and the FDA's shelf-life program, many lose some efficacy, and it depends on how they are stored. (See old.post-gazette.com/pg/05150/512789-114.stm for more information.) Prozac is a drug that you shouldn't jump into or out of, so if you haven't been taking it, the safest thing to do is to see a doctor… Read More
It is ok, but if you are taking Prozac for Bipolar Disorder, G. B. has been known to cause hypomania, so watch out for that. Other side effects are headache and nausea.
Running will certainly tone up your muscles, but don't forget ... muscle weighs more than fat.
Best way to find out what is safe is at pharmacy or doctors. Some may cancel out benefits of meds some may be dangerous. DeeDee0920

Soak it in a mixture of natural sea salt and warm water. Put a pinch of natural sea salt into a shot glass of warm water. Push the shot glass onto your stomach to create a suction. Do it for about 5 mins no more than twice a day. If the salt is too drying, try using less and if that doesn't help then just use warm water. NEVER USE ALCOHOL ON A PIERCING.
