Prozac Solution (Fluoxetine) is a medication used to treat major depression, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, bulimia, and is also used to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Fluoxetine works by increasing the levels of serotonin in the brain. This medication may improve your mood, sleep appetite, and energy level and may help restore your interest in daily living. It may also decrease fear, anxiety, unwanted thoughts, and the number of panic attacks; reduce the urge to repeat tasks (OCD); lessen premenstrual symptoms and decrease binging and purging behaviors in bulimia.
