About Taking prozac....?

I'm going to be taking prozac, and I like to go to the bar on Karoke night once a month...can I drink?

Secondly, I was reading about how you shouldn't take pain killers like asprin or aleve or advil. What if I get a headache?


Yeah, and I don't want to hear that crap about suicides and junk because every individual's chemistry is different, That's why there are a plethora of different drugs out there to treat depression.

    My advice - do not ever touch Prozac.

    Summary of All Adverse Reaction Reports for Prozac (Fluoxetine)

    Attempted Suicides (not completed): 65

    Completed Suicides: 187

    Homicidal Ideations: 12

    Homicides/Murders: 17

    Hypomania/Mania: 31



    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.
