My dr just took me off 70 mg of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and started me on prozac. How long do I need to wait before taking the Prozac to avoid a possible interaction?
Depends: If these are the only medications you are on, then there is no need to impose a wait time between starting Prozac after stopping vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). These medications are often prescribed concurrently. Prozac (fluoxetine) is considerable potential for interactions with a variety of medications. As such, ensure that your prescribers know that you are taking it to minimize potential interactions. ...Read more
Probably not: Probably not. The nausea with Prozac (fluoxetine) is not due to your stomach irritation, but rather due to the stimulation of the serotonin receptors in the brain. Of course, there are also serotonin receptors in the gut – but these, to the best of my knowledge, are not directly involved in the nausea / vomiting reflex. ...Read more
What can you tell me about prozac (fluoxetine)? What are the usual side effects? What should I watch out for? Do I have to take it with food?

Parkinson's disease is caused by a decrease of dopamine in the brain. You can get Parkinson's like symptoms from taking anti-psychotic medications, but not from taking anti-depressants. ...Read more

What kind of whey protein can I take while on Prozac (fluoxetine) 40mg? I heard that certain whey protein can cause serotonin syndrom. Thank you for your time.
Serotonin syndrome can be caused by taking high amounts of tryptophan with Prozac (fluoxetine) & other ssri's. Tryptophan occurs in many foods like dairy & turkey as well. Moderate tryptophan is safe. My favorite whey protein is whey cool: http://www. Rockwellnutrition. Com/p-designs-for-health-whey-cool-vanilla-organic-whey-protein#tablist

Is there any connection between Prozac and diabetes? After being put on prozac, diabetes type II went out of control to the high side and it is still out of control even after switching to insulin (both long and short acting). Is there any connection betw
I: I am unaware of any clear association between Prozac (fluoxetine) and diabetes. Depression is more common in those with diabetes so anti-depressants are frequently prescribed for people with diabetes. Prozac (fluoxetine) tends to not cause weight gain. If you are convinced the Prozac (fluoxetine) increased your sugar (not at all likely) you can discuss stopping it and using a different anti-depressant. Some people get more motivated to test their sugar when their depression is better. I wonder if you are just testing your sugar more. If your a1c (the 3 month test of sugar control) went up a lot after the Prozac (fluoxetine) as compared to before the Prozac (fluoxetine) and you had no weight gain, that would suggest the Prozac (fluoxetine) did it. Discuss that with your doctor. See my blog post on exercise and depression and how to use Insulin below. Your doctor may benefit from reading the Insulin post. ...Read more
