I am currently on Prozac (fluoxetine) and the medication gave me muscle weakness and I fell. Is there a way I can regain my strength?

In brief: Call your doctor!

It would be very, very, very uncommon for Prozac alone to directly adversely affect muscle strength! there are however drug drug interactions and electrolyte changes that can occur with medications like fluoxetine.
You should make your physician aware of this episode without delay.
