Discussions that mention prozac

Hey girl,

Just want to let you know that it's all good. I am the same way sometimes. I've had a little bit of depression in the past, but looking back, I am sure it has a lot to do with hormones. I've talked to a lot of my girlfriends, and guess what? We're all the same way! However, if you think you might have some depression that just isn't going to go away by itself, talk to your doctor. I know that sounds like a commercial, but he might be able to give you something that will help temporarily or long-term. It might also be PMDD, which is basically when you get PMS times a million. I have that, and I take Prozac or Serafem a few weeks out of the month, and it helps with the crying fits and throwing stuff! (My husband loves the stuff!) There could be a lot of reasons you're feeling like crap, but from what you said it sounds like a case of being a woman. I started feeling it when I was around 18. Just know that you're not alone, and don't be afraid to talk to someone about it if it gets too much. Talking is always the best medicine for me.
