    Hi kicki

    Yes, it is very normal, it is one of side effects from Fluoxetine. There are many of them but lost of appetite and nausea is very common. I was so sick that could not eat and lost 6 kilos, but than i start to take meds for nausea so i was able to eat something, usually smoothies. It will pass, don't be scared. It is very tough journey on Fluoxetine, up and downs with so many side effects that making us think we are getting worse, i am going through all this too, i am on week 19 at 20mg and still very tough. If you like we can keep in touch and help each other through this journey 😃 I know how hard it is and makes us feel lonely and scared
