Can someone please tell me some of the side effects I will feel? This is Day 5 I've taken it and I'm a little nerve wrecked....my body feels tense. Is this all normal?! Someone please inform me. smile

    What you are experiencing is standard for flouextine side effects. Some of the other side effects are, loss appetite, nausea, sweating, increased anxiety, tremors (in my case foot tapping) joint/muscle aches, yawning, letheragy, bleeding gums, headdaches, detached feeling

    Side effects can differ from person to person but most side effects disappear around 12 weeks.

    If you can'tell cope go see your doctor but stick with it its worth it

    All normal.. do not panic. Headaches.. nausea... wide awake with major energy until about 6 weeks in and then sleep settled down... awesome dreams.. a bit of anxiety.. it is all normal.. just the stuff working its way in so it can make you feel better.

    All normal I had anxiety, depression, cold sweats, loss off appetite and bowel problems all not a lot of fun, making you think it was better before but stick with it. It may take 6 to 8 weeks to settle. I gave up a month in and felt better for a while but ended up back at square one and had to start again. Don't do that and don't think you need to up your meds as it takes time..... Good luck......

    I've been taking it for a week and didn't have any side effects at all. But I do have Ativan to take if I need it. Can you ask your doc for something like that?
