    Hi there

    Yes, this can happen but it will stop happening within the coming weeks .

    When returning to the tablets, the symptoms may be slightly different this time round but give it a few weeks and it will settle down.

    I took mine every morning as well to help me sleep better in the night.

    Take care and take it step by step.

    Hi Helen

    that's the common side effect people have on fluoxetine and it will go away. I have the same story, first time taking fluoxetine i just have dizziness and was very sleepy and it lasted only for 2 weeks. But this time years after i start taking meds again i have had the whole range of side effects and they were lasting for much much longer. You will be fine, it will pass
