 I have a prescription for Prozac but afraid to take it. I am afraid of the side effects because I have my nephew here and my 2 yr old ds. I don't want to get overly drowsy or shaky. Should I wait to take it at night? Will it be effective if I do?

Any help would be appreciated!

i took prozac years ago..  i didn't have any side effects like that at all..  in fact it gave energy & it worked really well.  the only side effect i did complain about was it gave a low sex drive & it sort of made me  uncaring after awhile.  i had no emotion.

 I take it and have never had a problem with it making me sleepy

I never had those side effects from it. I'm currently on it.

I have in the past. It didn't do much for me. I mean, it helped but I didn't feel any affects right away.

I was on Prozac for a while and the first two days I felt off but after that things got better! It didn't really effect my sex drive so that was good, and I was really happy. Then I got to thinking and started worrying about taking it because I wanted my emotions to be my own, not some stupid pill.

 I know it's going to take a while for it to actually take effect but I was just worried about the side effects...
