If the side effect is drowsiness, it will certainly help to take the pill at bed time. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

The side effects of Prozac include jitteriness, insomnia, sexual side effects (especially difficulty reaching orgasm), stomach problems including nausea and/or diarrhea. Another important side effect is tachyphylaxis, a fancy word for tolerance. Prozac stays in the body for a long time and the time of day that you take it becomes irrelevant after five doses.
