What is your First Thought of Someone who is on Prozac?

Or what do you think when you hear that someone is on it? There is a personal reason why I want to know. Thanks.

  • I know plenty of people who are on medications fro depression or other psychological issues. I don't "think" anything of them unless they are acting crazy.. Just kidding. really, if I found out that someone I know is on meds I don't really care. I feel that they are doing their best to take care of themselves to live a happy and healthy life. Nothing wrong with that at all. It is the non-medicated people that scare me. I know a few of them who are severely depressed, suicidal, etc. I would much rather see them taking meds than being sick and miserable or possibly harming themselves or someone else. It takes a lot of courage to get help, whether it be meds and/or counseling.

  • I don't think much about it, personally. Anybody who has lived very long at all or had a tough ife needs help sometimes.

  • I'm on an anti-depressant, I personally, have heard bad things about Prozac. But I don't think any less of the person.

  • OP here...
    Thanks everyone for your nice answers, I feel so much better now! :) I was on Cymbalta for Postpartum depression and post traumatic stress disorder, but went off of it for personal reasons. I was recently prescribed Prozac by my Dr. but have had a hard time getting myself to fill the prescription and take it. I have heard so much negative stuff about it and about those to whom it's prescribed, it just made me feel sort of funny about being on it. Thanks again!
