I'm 2 months in. Headaches were a very frequent side effect for me the first few weeks as was sleeplessness and irritability. The headaches and irritability went away. I'm still dealing with the sleeplessness. I have found that cardio really helps in that arena.

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.

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
