    hiya mum2jord :cheerup:

    welcome to the machine mum2jord :mrgreen: you've come to the right place, there's plenty of info here, so it's a good idea to have a browse and there's plenty of peeps that will help and give support :ok:

    as regards side effects fluoxetine (prozac) is about the best there is when it comes to side effects (that is lack of um :wink: ) but were all different so there's no hard and fast rules im afraid :? :wink:

    if you have any questions or concerns :huh: just fire away, it's a long roller coast ride to a full recovery, so just try and relax and enjoy the ride lol :shock: don't do too much, avoid stress like the plague, be a tad shelfish and be kind to yourself, don't beat ya self up if ya can't do stuff, 'listen' to your body and go with it to a certain extent, don't try and fight it too much, you WILL get better in time, keep taking the pills as they say in the trade lol :doctor: :whistle:

    cheers,

    Ken ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :cheers: :rainbow: :rose:
