After my dads stroke, his dr put him on Prozac and Remeron (mirtazapine) to help him sleep! Can these 2 drugs together cause severe mood changes? What do I do?
Yes: I would not use either drug with a patient who has had a stroke, as the adverse effect profile might present in a far more intense fashion, especially suicide risks with Prosac. I personally feel uncomfortable with the approach, and recommend a visit to a geriatrician or psychiatrist to get this straightened out. ...Read more
Is it ok to take Albuterol as needed while I take Prozac (fluoxetine)? I saw on the drug interaction checker this can cause arrythmias? I have bad asthma.
Yes: If you need albuterol for rescue treatment don't avoid it because you are taking Prozac (fluoxetine). If you are requiring albuterol frequently make an appointment with primary doctor so that you can get your asthma worked up, sounds like you are poorly controlled.

Hi. Male and 40. Couldn't orgasm tonight. Recently went to ER for uti and dehydration. On Bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) trazedone, and Prozac. Do these drugs cause this?
About 15 yrs ago Prozac was my "miracle drug", and now it seems to have pooped out. I have tried viibryd and it just caused bloating and hair loss. Should I try something with the Prozac to get my happiness back? What about wellbutrin, can I take this wit
Poop out: Unfortunately antidepressant poop-out isn't rare. This may happen with any antidepressant. Strategies to overcome this can include: a different antidepressant (especially combination ssri-snri), use of atypical antipsychotic (e.g. Abilify), or methyl donor such as same or folic acid. ...Read more
Is the anus a muscle because I feel like it is being left open after a bowel movement. Think it is caused by haldol (haloperidol) decanoate it zyprexa or prozac?
Yes: There is an anal sphincter which is a set of muscles that open and close the anus to allow for defecation. It relaxes and opens to permit passage of fecal contents and may remain relaxed after bowel movements for a period before regaining tone. This is normal. It is unlikely a result of your medications. ...Read more

If occuring early on it could be the medication or not enough time to clear tiredness from depression. Wait it out. ...Read more
I am on Prozac (fluoxetine) 60mg I am going nuts I don't have it nomore to take cause it expensive and insurance won't pay for it what do I do?
Not significantly.: Fluoxetine blocks an enzyme at the liver that breaks down some medications. Most anesthetic medications are either not metabolized at all-- the inhaled agents-- or are broken down by several mechanisms. Fluoxetine does not affect hemodynamics or other life functions in a way that would interfere with anesthesia. ...Read more

What to do if a friend of mine told me about this drug, which is like Prozac (fluoxetine) but more powerful. It's called fsrs, has anyone heard of it?
I am just wondering between wellubutrin and Prozac (fluoxetine) which drug is less harsh or should I say safer to take, and for long term use which one is better?
Relative safety: Within appropriate dosage limits, both are safe and effective for depression. However, they have different neurotransmitter profiles. Prozac has anti-anxiety effects which wellbutrin (bupropion) does not have; wellbutrin (bupropion) has less potential effects on sexual function. If you have a seizure disorder, brain tumor, or an eating disorder, wellbutrin (bupropion) would not be safe for you but Prozac might still be. ...Read more
