  • I was on it a couple yrs ago. It gave me really bad headaches. I didn't loose or gain weight either.

  • I WAS on Prozac. I hated it. I didn't notice any weight gain on it. But, I did have terrible heartburn, insomnia and headaches. I only got the heartburn after I took a pill, which my doctor prescribed a heavy duty antacid for. (Didn't help though.) He also prescribed a sleep aid after I complained I couldn't sleep and told me to take 3 ibuprofen tablets when I got the headaches. (Again, didn't work.) I weened myself off of it and low and behold, all those symptoms went away.

  • It destroyed my metabolism. I took it from 1999-2001. I gained a lot of weight and had difficulty losing it. Coming off it was horrible, but I did because I was pregnant.
