  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: When i first started i took it at night when i went to bed just in case i had side effects i thought maybe i would sleep through them,and just this week i have started taking first thing in the morning and the reason i switched is because i missed a couple of days and when i remembered it was morning so i went ahead and took so i have been on mornings since.i notice iv started sweating which i hardly ever did before and some headaches that are new from time to time but mild and short lasting. overall i can tell a difference in my depression and my fibro fatigue.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Treat my mood condition(s): Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Insomnia: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: Can’t tell
  • Perceived effectiveness for Anxious mood: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I'm sensitive to most medications: the rash kicks in for me at about 15 mg daily, at 10 mg daily I oversleep, so I was down to 5 mg a day. When I could only get capsules, this meant taking 10 mg every other day. Sexual adverse effects seemed to lessen over time. Discontinued for a trial of venlaxafine (Effexor), an SNRI.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Sleepiness, Somnolence, Itchy rash, Vivid dreams, Sexual dysfunction

  • Perceived effectiveness for Other: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Treat my mood condition(s): Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: The rash was scary because unexpected. There are conflicting reports about whether such a rash or hives is serious, but common 'net advice is to discontinue and check with your doctor: http://www.google.com/search?q=fluoxetine+rash+hives Adverse effects seem to lessen over time. Because of the long half-life, titration up or down should probably be done slowly and in the smallest increments practical in order to accurately judge effects.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Sleepiness, Somnolence, Itchy rash, Vivid dreams, Sexual dysfunction
