    Prozac and Weightlifitng

    Hi all,
    I recently started taking 20 mg Prozac for depression/OCD. (I'm still in the first two weeks so its hard to tell whether or not its working; the first week was pretty rough though). I was wondering if anyone who takes Prozac, and exercises regularly - particulary weightlifting - has seen any changes with regard to the results -- muscle increase/decrease?

    Thanx in advance.

    I exercise and lift weights regularly and I was on Prozac for eight years. I can't recall losing any muscle mass. However, be warned, Prozac does deplete protein and amino acids, so you should supplement with these.

    I don't think it matters one way or the other.

    Thanx you guys. I was quite sure it didn't matter one way or another, but I remember reading something about it effecting bone density in mice, and I was OCD'ing about it.
