Will Prozac (fluoxetine) help with my anxiety and phobias as well as my depression?

Probably. I am careful when i prescribe Prozac (fluoxetine) for my patients, as it can be very strong, too strong for some. If you take too much, it can cause more anxiety. This is why, i never start someone on more than 10 mgs per day and then, i wait a month before i consider increasing the dose. Prozac (fluoxetine) lasts a very long time in one's system, dosage changes should be very gradual, start low, go slow. Read more...

Contact your doctor. Having "tons of energy" on day 2 of Prozac (fluoxetine) can mean different things. One is that you're experiencing relief from symptoms. Another is that Prozac (fluoxetine) is triggering a hypomanic or manic episode -- and this needs assessment pronto. Nothing is wrong with having energy, but usually Prozac (fluoxetine) does not act quite that quickly. Please call your doctor and tell him/her what's happening with you. Be well. Read more...
