Fluoxetine: or Prozac (fluoxetine) is more commonly associated with difficulty sleeping or insomnia and is not generally thought of as a sedative medication. There may be other reasons for your daytime sleepiness but you should be ok to try taking this medicine at night.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
