We just started my son on Intuniv also. He started on 1mg for one week and then went to 2mg. He's been on 2mg for just over a week and the last two nights he has woken up acting weird. Crying and shaking his right arm and hand saying they won't leave me alone. I hold him in the rocking chair and rock him rubbing his head and calming him down and try to get him to wake up all the way. Once he is fully awake he has no idea why he's crying. Tonight he did the same thing again crying that the

Throat on fire!
I too had heartburn. Doc swore he didn't thimk it was from prozac. Get probotics 40mg and take it a few hours before your prozac. Laying down you may still feel some heat arise but it def puts it at a very tolerable level. Milk of magnesium works to treat the burn if you don't have probotics but its not nearly as effective.

I used prozac 1st in the 80s. Started having stomach and ephogus and throat burning. Was treated for GERD. No improvement. When I finally discontinued Prozac the burning slowly went away. Stopped GERD meds for a couple yrs. Went back on Prozac and the severe burning started again after several days. Have stopped Prozac ... burning stopped. Prozac helped my depression and II really want to take but just can't endure the burning. Even kept me awake at night. Oh, when I told drs about they
