Antidepressants, such as Prodep 20, are used to treat major depressive disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), bulimia nervosa (eating disorder), and panic disorder. Depression is a mental condition marked by feelings of sadness, dissatisfaction, anger, hopelessness, or loss that interfere with daily tasks.
Fluoxetine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, is found in Prodep 20. It works by preventing nerves from reabsorbing serotonin, a mood-enhancing chemical messenger that talks between brain cells. This causes an increase in serotonin concentrations in the neuron synapse, which aids in mood regulation and depression treatment.
Prodep 20 can be taken with or without food. Take Prodep 20 exactly as directed. Depending on your medical condition and response to treatment, you should take Prodep 20 for as long as your doctor has prescribed it. Certain typical adverse effects, such as insomnia (difficulty sleeping), headache, diarrhea, nausea, weariness, dry mouth, loss of appetite, and indigestion, may occur in some circumstances. The majority of these adverse effects do not necessitate medical treatment and will subside with time. However, if you are experiencing these adverse effects on a regular basis, you should consult your doctor.
Please do not stop taking Prodep 20 on your own because withdrawal symptoms may occur. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, don’t take Prodep 20 unless your doctor tells you to. Prodep 20 may induce dizziness and impair your reactions, so do not drive or use machinery while taking it. Because the safety and effectiveness of Prodep 20 have not been proved, it should not be administered to children under the age of eight. Alcohol should not be used while taking Prodep 20 because it may cause dizziness. To rule out any negative effects, keep your doctor updated about your health condition and medications.

Sadness, loss of interest, changes in food, sleep problems, restlessness, lack of energy, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, suicidal thoughts, difficulty concentrating, making decisions, and thinking are all symptoms.
