You find the answers here. Prozac is not safe at all.
Summary of All Adverse Reaction Reports for Prozac (Fluoxetine)
Note - these are not all adverse reactions - only those most serious.
Depression Suicidal/Suicidal Ideations: 113
Attempted Suicides (not completed): 65
Completed Suicides: 187
Deaths (not from Suicide): 34
Homicidal Ideations: 12
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.

You should be fine. The purpose of Prozac is to control anxiety and depression... If the medication is newly prescribed, be sure to begin taking it when you have two consecutive days off so you know how your body will react prior to getting behind the controls of the forklift. :0)
