Do you take Prozac?

And has it made you gain weight, do you like it, why why not...I just started taking it and I think it helps but I'm really not sure...how long did it take for you to notice a difference. Also have you ever taken it and gotten off of it, was that easy?

  • I took it years ago. I experienced a slight weight gain. Prozac didn't work for me. It generally takes about two weeks before you notice a difference in mood. It was easy for me to discontinue this medication.

  • I took it when I was 20. It did not work. But many antidepressants do not work for people 25 & under.
