Currently makes me tired but helps. Had to reduce dosage and add wellbutrin to minimize side effect.
Working / Worked
I was on Prozac for years. I gained weight which did not help, I was always the same weight for two decades. I go on Prozac and gain 60 pounds. I also yawned and yawned and yawned. Almost like a tic. But overall it changed my life. It brought me out of a deep depression, and helped my focus. I go more done to graduate college and focus on my life's responsibilities. It was like the first time I knew what normal was.
Working / Worked
Prozac is a staple in my "cocktail" of medications. For me, the side effects are pretty minimal, and it can be a real life saver. My only frustration is that it doesn't work as well as it used to, but maybe I've just developed a tolerance to it over the years. My psychiatrist wants me to try a few new medications in February, and I can only hope they work as well as Prozac once did for me.

It is the only antidepressant that effectively treats my depressive symptoms and binge eating disorder. Also only antidepressant, besides Wellbutrin, that curbs my sugar cravings and has actually led to me losing weight
