What is Prozac used for?
Prozac is a medicine for treating depression. Alternatively known as fluoxetine, Prozac alters unstable brain chemicals in depressed people. Prozac is mostly used to cure MDD (major depressive disorder), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders such as panic disorder and bulimia nervosa. Sometimes the doctor will combine Prozac with another drug (mainly Olanzapine) to tackle manic depression that is triggered by bipolar disorder.
They can also do so when depression does not respond to two other medicines. Prozac and olanzapine combination is used to cure manic depression and depression that has become stubborn and unresponsive to other medicines. A selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), Prozac acts on the serotonin chemical in the brain.
How is Fluoxetine dosage taken?
It is important to take your Prozac just as your doctor recommends. Follow all instructions keenly to avoid taking a smaller or a larger dose than recommended. Additionally, don’t give your medicine to another person; they should seek medical help instead. Prozac is best taken whole. Don’t chew, crush, split or open your capsule. This medicine takes about four weeks to improve the symptoms. Thus, take it for the duration your doctor has recommended. If you want to discontinue use, do it gradually to avoid serious withdrawal symptoms under the supervision of your doctor.
If you miss your dose, take it the soonest you can recall. Skip it still if you are almost taking the next dose. This will prevent an overdose. If your doctor has asked you to take a dose a week and you miss it, take it the soonest you can remember. Then go back to the weekly schedule after seven days. But, if you are almost taking your weekly dose, skip the dose you have missed altogether.
