Prozac - January 2nd 2012, 01:25 AM

I've been taking Prozac for 4 days now, and I have been noticing a difference. I realize it may just be a placebo effect, but I'm not sure. I feel like I can focus my thoughts better and not dwell on my sadness as much. However, I am having some side effects. One is that for the past few days I have been waking up about an hour our an hour and a half earlier than I would plan to. This seems to be getting better gradually, though. The other side effect is that it is more difficult for me to climax than before. Significantly more difficult. I still have some drive to masturbate, but it takes me so much longer to orgasm. I know this is a common side effect, though. I just want to know if these side effects go away once I take it long enough. If anyone has taken this med or others like it and have similar experiences, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

Usually the side effects will get better, but not completely go away. However, when I was on Prozac I was told it would take about 2 weeks to really notice any effect, so in your case it may get better as time goes on. I would discuss this with your psychiatrist though and see what their thoughts on it are.
But be prepared for side effects, because which anti-depressants its common to notice some small changes.

And here you are living, despite it all.

I have been on prozac for about 3 months now. I noticed these side effects too but now I can climax just as I could before. You will feel soooo much better when it completely sets in, it is a life savor. Just a word of advice, do not take vitamin b vitamins while on this because it will make it much worse. I found that out the hard way. Any questions feel free to PM me! Feel better!
