Healthcare providers may prescribe fluoxetine for the treatment of depression, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or bulimia. The medication works by balancing the levels of serotonin in the brain. Potential side effects may include headache, insomnia, and nausea. Fluoxetine, which comes in both capsule and liquid form and is available in a variety of strengths, is generally taken once or twice a day. It must be taken as prescribed in order to work properly.
Fluoxetine is not suitable for everyone. For example, people with a history of bipolar disorder, seizures, diabetes, or certain allergies may not be able to safely take the drug. Commonly reported side effects include insomnia, diarrhea, headache, and loss of appetite.
