Fluoxetine

Hi - this may sound like a strange question but just wondered if anyone has been on Fluoxetine and can let me know whether it was OK. I have a form of prostate disease called prostatitis and my GP has tried antibiotics which haven't really worked. He's suggesting Fluoxetine which can be used to treat this sort of condition, but was made to treat depression. I'm nervous about taking it for a prostate problem as I'm not sure what the side effects could be.

If anyone can enlighten me I'd be grateful.

Re: Fluoxetine

Hi
I have been on flux for 4 years now , and had a prev stint of about 8 years, it does help with treating my depression, and am lucky I don't seem to get any side effects, it also helped get me thru my eating disorder.
That's about it really good luck with your treatment

Hi DeebyLeicestershire - thanks for replying to my post. It's good to know that you've not suffered any side effects taking the medication. I will do a little more research then go back and talk to my GP. Thanks again - really helpful.

Re: Fluoxetine

Fluoxetine is an antidepressant and belongs to a group of medicines known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). This medicine works by increasing the activity of a chemical called serotonin in the brain. This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.
