I felt a need to mention that this year marks 30 years since Prozac (fluoxetine) was approved by the FDA as an antidepressant of the SSRI class, since I've been on the medication for over two years now and have been writing about it. Not sure I'll ever be as good as Wurtzel was at writing on such a thing, since his is what made me want to tell my story. I felt I was stealing her thunder by trying to write about the same subject, but everyone I know convinced me otherwise. It will be two year next February since I began my story, and I don't know how much longer I need to work on it. Those who have been reading my blog regularly will already know all that.
I was told when my psychiatrist first prescribed Prozac to me that he prescribes it the most fall antidepressants, since's it been round the longest. Though I seem to see few other clients at Behavioral Health on Prozac. Some think it's it's out of date, but my boss says that isn't true.It all depends what works for each person as each medication works different for different people.
I feel I have been less depressed from Prozac, but I still get depressed. It only decreases the depression, it's not a cure!
