Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi, My friend started taking Fluoxetine, 20 mg daily 2 weeks ago. He said this past week he had a few really rough days where he had suicidal thoughts. He also was drinking with the pills and I told him I don't think with Prozac you are suppose to drink, is that correct? Anyways, he hasn't drank in the last few days, but still feels he says like he's "out of his body" - last night he had a really bad headache. Are these symptoms normal? Obviously, he needs to go back to his doctor, but he got the medicine from a family doctor, not a psychiatrist so maybe it's not the correct treatment for him? Or does it take awhile for the body to adjust to the medicine and for it take take full effect?
