Burning tongue?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all. I've been off of Prozac for about two weeks now. I took 10 mgs for 10 weeks. From the moment I took my first pill, I've had issues with my tongue and sometimes my throat burning. I assume it's burning mouth syndrome, and from the timing I feel like it has to be from the Prozac. Has anyone else had issues with this? Thanks and hope you are all doing well.

      Thanks Woo. I also wondered if it could be caused by hormone imbalances. But since it literally started after taking my first pill, I know the Prozac has to have something to do with it. Did you ever find anything to make it better? It gets worse when I eat.

    Were you taking the main brand or a generic? I refuse to take anything generic as have had side effects from the filler in the product before. My sister ended up in hospital a while back because her pharmacist gave her the generic brand of her usual medication and she got sick. Just a thought. Main brands cost extra but I just do not care especially if not always getting the meds from the same drug store.
