What do ya'all think about Prozac?

My neuro is starting me on Prozac. Anyone else on that? What do you think of it? Any advice or recommendations? Thanks.

I am on Prozac, I have been on many different meds Prozac seems to be the only one that helps. It can also give you some energy.

OK. Have been on prozac ( increasing dosage) still a waterfall of emotion.

OK. Have been on prozac ( increasing dosage) still a waterfall of emotion.

Thinking of switching to another anti-depressant. Any suggestions? I might add that the emotional issues are my worst. I have seen 4 psychologists and 1 psychiatrist and am not happy with their input. I wish there was an MS facility where you could tackle off the problems of this disease in "one stop shop"

How many different medications do you take?

How many different medications do you take?

My number seems to increase. I'm curious to know what number range is common and how it affects your life. A normal person would think that it'd be overmedicating and dangerous to the body. But it's different for a person with MS and other issues like epileptic tendencies like myself. It's hard not to be concerned about too many meds. My list:

Aubagio
Keppra
Prozac
Birth control
Baclofen (new for my foot pain when I sleep)
Plus multivitamin and probiotic

Has anyone gone through a total personality change.

My personality went from out going, glass full, interested in things to not wanting to really be around people, never get excited about anything, not much interests me any more. As anyone else gone through this?

Wellbutrin, Prozac and Rebif

Wellbutrin, Prozac and Rebif

Hi All,
I am new to this forum but not new to MS. I have had MS for 15 years and luckily have managed it well. 6 years ago I started Paxil for anxiety that was causing IBS symptoms. After gaining a lot of weight, I weaned myself off it this summer with the help of my doctor. I have been using both prozac and wellbutrin, lowest dosages possible but I am curious if anyone has any information on either of these with Rebif. Wellbutrin seems to make me more anxious which my doctor said… read more
