What are the side effects of one dose of prozac?

My aunt took one of my uncle's prozac meds by accident instead of her regular medication and we're curious to know if she will have any side effects from one dose? It's a 20mg pill. She was supposed to have taken a pill for her cholesterol. :/

  • I would have her call the Dr. who is treating your Aunt for her cholesterol and you can always call your local Pharmacy and ask a Pharmacist. Most Anti Depressants have to build up in the system first so I think she will be okay.

  • No like matheson said, its takes time for a drug like prozac to have any effect, unless she has an allergic reaction, and u will know right away, like an hour or less or even that long.
