Is it common for people taking Prozac (fluoxetine) or other anti-depressant drugs to make inappropriate comments?

In brief: Did they before?

In depression, it is common not to enjoy activities previously enjoyed.
Someone who used to find humor in making inappropriate comments may stop this behavior while depressed. As mood improves, this behavior may return.

In brief: Not really

There isn't anything in my experience that suggests that Prozac (fluoxetine) or other antidepressants do that.
Depression can be a part of all types of inappropriate behavior, in part because insight and judgement are affected by depression. Still, it's a personal responsibility, depressed or not, to monitor our behavior and do our best to say and do right things, including getting help for depression.
