    I would recommend you to watch following DVD that is available online if you have fast internet. It's told by psychiatrists, psychologists and people who worked for pharmaceutical companies. It informs you - beside other things - about side effects that are not often being told by psychiatrists. It also suggests an alternative in the end. When you then make a decision to take antidepressants, you may be better prepared, educated and understand what's going on when you encounter some bad side effects. I would say that these information are actually vital.

    The link sounds a little scary - that’s because many antidepressants have suicidal thoughts and impulses as side effects which you can also read inside the pack of some antidepressants.

    Prozac Overdose: Symptoms

    If a person overdoses on Prozac, the symptoms can vary. The most common Prozac overdose symptoms include:

    * Seizures

    * Drowsiness

    * Nausea

    * Fast heart rate (tachycardia)

    * Vomiting.

    Other Prozac overdose symptoms may include, but are not limited to:

    * Coma

    * Irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia)

    * High blood pressure (hypertension)

    * Low blood pressure (hypotension)

    * Fever

    * Fainting

    * Loss of life.

    PS, Prozac is not addictive, it's an antidepressant with a low risk of dependency. It is not a narcotic or a sedative or a pain medication, all of which have higher risks of addiction. No studies have demonstrated that it can cause dependency or addiction

    You could become addicted to it and would not be able to stop taking it or if you take more then the directed amount you could suffer an overdose.
