I hear your: Frustration, but the are so many medications because not every patient responds to every med. Keep working to find the one that is right for you --- it will be worth it!

Prozac (fluoxetine): Fortunately both conditions will benefit from the same medication.

Prozac (fluoxetine): Consult you doctor about optimizing the Prozac (fluoxetine) dose since it can work for pcs at higher dose.
