Hard to explain but Prozac (fluoxetine) feels "intense" to me. Any milder antidepressants?

In brief: Milder?

It depends on your symptoms.
Prozac (fluoxetine) is more activating than many other antidepressants and better for low motivation and energy. There are many antidepressants and each have their own side effect profile and mechanism of action. Discuss options with prescribing doc. If (s)he is not a psychiatrist consider requesting a referral
