Prozac (Fluoxetine) and Stomach Issues - Need Help!
I just started taking Prozac (fluoxetine) on Sunday. I am on 10mg for 7 days, and planning to go to 20mg after. Anyway, I am having major GI tract issues. Basically, cramping and a "sick" feeling in my gut, borderline constipation, and awful flatulence. It's bad enough that I may stop the drug. My GI tract doesn't feel well at all.
Has anyone else experienced this? Did these symptoms go away? Serotonin plays a role in the GI tract, but I cannot say I've had issues like this with Lexapro.

Well, it's been about 7 weeks now and the stomach issues have greatly improved. My GI tract is doing much better at this stage than when I was on Lexapro. However, I don't think the Prozac is working nearly as well on my depression.
