Fluoxetine (Prozac®) is a medication used for the treatment of depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and bulimia. When used in combination with Zyprexa® (olanzapine), it is also approved for treating bipolar depression and treatment-resistant depression. It can also be used to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).
