I've split you off from where you had originally made your post Lynn as what you are asking about is something different to what the original topic is about. I've also moved you into here as it's a more suitable board.

Prozac {Fluoxetine} is used in managing FM in a similar way to other anti~ds such as Amitriptyline, as they can be effective, even if the person is not truly depressed, by improving sleep and breaking the vicious cycle of sleep disturbance and pain.

It has been mentioned on here a number of times, if you use the Search box in the top right corner of the page, it should bring up all mentions of it.

Like many of the other things used in trying to manage FM, it needs time to build up and take effect, which can be about a month to 6 weeks{ish} and also, what may help one may not be as beneficial for another, so try to keep your mind as open as you can and give it a good go, you never know, it could be something that makes a nice difference to you :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:


If your dog doesn't like someone, then you probably shouldn't either

I can only tell you about my experience of Prozac, I was put on this after my diagnosis, I took 2 tablets then had a really bad reaction to it. I was absolutely terrified, of what I don't know, I couldn't move, talk or do anything. I have never been so scared in my life and it took many hours to ease. My GP (who didn't prescribe it) said this is a common side effect and many people can't take it for that reason. Since then I have been taking Sertraline and have been fine. As I said that is my experience, many people take it with no problems :goodluck2:

I think mostly everyone is on some sort of anti depressant.
The thing is there I'd a lot of stigma anti depressants aren't just for those depressed although with Fibro pain and depression go hand in hand.
I attended the pain clinic years ago because I have problems with my jaw etc ( TMD ) and wide onset pain they put me on Mitazipine 45mg I swear by them.
I take one every night and the good thing about them as well is they help me sleep which means I have one less tablet to take,
With everything it is trial and error and nothing will work the same for everyone.

Don't be ashamed to say you are on anti depressants there is nothing wrong with saying you are I'll and your prepared to try anything to help you feel better xx
