I'm both new to the site and to the drug fluoxetine. Having tried so many other therapies and/or antideps, for long term episodic depression/anxiety, I think this fluoxetine may be my last chance. I am allergic to so many drugs etc. A double edged sword, but I've found this site really useful as so many people are posting their similar experiences, e.g. nausea; sweating; insomnia and irritable bowel. Its helping me focus and not give up too quickly, give it more time and hopefully these nasty side effects will either lessen or disappear altogether and leave me with a positive effect. I just don't like not being able to 'get on' with things, now. So impatient I am. Thanks for your contributions. Angel
