Re: fluoxetine any1?
Fluoxetine is generic Prozac. No, it doesn't get prescribed to everyone, but Prozac has kind of taken on a "generic" name, just like "Kleenex" seems to be generic for paper tissues.
I don't think that Prozac is necessarily prescribed only for severe depression. It's an SSRI, and those are frequently first choice for anxiety/depression, which are usually linked. 20 mg. is a fairly mild dose.
Congratulations on going to the doctor! You've taken an important step.
