Yes it should: So glad to hear that brain MRI was ok. Yes, Prozac (fluoxetine) is prescribed for people who have anxiety and the symptoms you have reported are anxiety related. It should start relieving symptoms within two weeks with maximum effect in 4-6 weeks. Psychotherapy also will help to learn to manage anxiety triggers.

MEDICATION: Best to discuss medication with your Psychiatrist. If uncomfortable with your Dr. consult another for a 2nd opinion. Have a physical exam by a Dr. to determine if you have a physical illness. Consult with a Clinical Psychologist with expertise in multiple types of psychotherapy for ZOOM. Fears & anxiety are heightened due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay safe & hopeful to elevate your immune system.

Post anxiety : I believe you are using Google to diagnose yourself. Anxiety is a very strange and debilitating condition that we all experience it. Please consult your psychiatrist.
