Prozac For Fibro

Any anti depressant can help tremendously with fibro, helping with fog, anxiety, depression, even energy.
Prozac did give me more energy and helped me get up every day but after a while it made me feel like punching somebody in the face, like it irritated me.
Anti depressants have a wide range of affects for many different people though.
Much of modern medicine is 'try it and see'. Just start out low dose and if the effects are bad after a month quit it. If it doesn't seem to do anything increase the dose.

it has taken me five years to get a medicine package that works for me.
I've evaluated many many meds.
I keep a log of dosages, times taken, side effects, interactions, many details.
With fibro fog I would NEVER have been able to properly evaluate them without a log.
Best to you and God bless in all you do and your journey to live with this horrible disease.
