In brief: Other Reasons

Although most people associate Prozac or fluoxetine with depression, it has a number of indicated uses.
Among the fda-labeled indications are bulimia, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Non-fda labeled indications include fibromyalgia, raynaud's phenomenon, postraumatic stress disorder, and even hot flashes.
