Only difference is: Let your provider know about this side effect. This is the only way they can provide the best treatment choices, they need to know. Otherwise, do what you'd normally do w/ respect to diarrhea. Diet choices and OTC remedies (follow directions) and drink lots of water. How do you know it's caused by Prozac (fluoxetine)? Again, discuss w/ Dr. best!
