Re: fluxatine

I don't know about sodium, but it does deplete protein, amino acids, and melatonin. Sadly, though, if you take extra melatonin while on fluoxetine, you can end up feeling depressed. Strange, I know. I've had this experience, though.

Re: fluxatine

You're quite welcome. And, you're absolutely right, they don't always disclose much information. I found out about the depletions through my own research. We need to be informed consumers. Good luck and let me know if you find out anything. By the way, I was on Prozac (fluoxetine) for eight years.
