Chronic Fatigue - Prozac

Recommended Posts

I started Prozac in July of last year and haven't been the same since. Within a week I found myself constantly tired. It has gotten worse and worse since then. Just a few months ago, on my good days I could get 4 hours out of me before I needed to rest.. now i'm lucky if I get 2. I'm almost completely bedridden. It feels like my whole body and brain are tired. This drug is horrible and now I feel this will never leave.

I experienced very weak muscles/ligaments when taking Prozac.  I can remember that when walking along a beach I had great difficulty with my hips as I walked.  It felt like you do in later pregnancy when you "waddle", but this was prior to becoming pregnant the first time.
