Safety Issues With Fluoxetine
As with any medicine, there are possible side effects. However, not everyone who takes the antidepressant will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it well. When fluoxetine side effects do occur, in most cases they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
The most common side effects include:
- Insomnia (see Prozac and Insomnia)
- Loss of appetite (see Prozac and Weight Loss)
