    Hi Emily, yes I took it for a while years ago when I was going through a very very hard time. Within ten days I felt much calmer, it DEFINATLEY took the edge off things and helped me sleep and cope with things - I had no side effects either., can't remember the dose age as it was a long time ago but for me I had no problems at all, we're all different and what works for some doesn't work for others. Then about a year ago I was put on Sertraline and oh my god what a horrible drug ( for me ) I had nightmares, sweats, nausea and felt awful I had to stop. But yes Prozac in my opinion was a great help when needed, so good luck, has your doctor recommended it for you then ?

    I don't personally but my mom has been taking Prozac for like 20 years and cannot be without it! Started working for her within a month with little to no side effects

    It's good for anxiety and depression I think and works with most patients. There are some side effects so read the material that comes with them.
