Positive Effects of Prozac:


• Controling Eating Disorders – Its major purpose is to augment eating disorders. Serotonin restrains and manages the human’s appetite. This explains the reasoning behind taking 5-HTP supplements to lose weight, because the 5-HTP will convert to serotonin and decrease or maintain a healthy appetite. Moreover, Prozac can also be used to treat bulimia effectively considering this. But let me tell you one thing that Prozac is not always effective in bulimics.

• Getting Rid Of Depression – Just about a couple of minutes ago I’ve mentioned that the re-absorption of Serotonin is prevented by the use of Prozac, due to which the amount of Serotonin is increased thus raising the chances of invoking a response from Serotonin receptors. So, the user would get rid of depression, sorrow and despair. A thrill of exhilaration would run through him and he would feel happiness. This effect of fluoxetine is not less than any precious treasure for a person suffering from depression. Getting rid of depression is not an easy job but with the use of Prozac, it is supposed to be.

• Hysteria (panic) Attacks – Last but not least, one of the major positive effects of Prozac is to get rid of anxiety attacks. The amount of Serotonin present in a human’s body instills a feeling of happiness and well being in a patient and Prozac is also used to carry out the same task.
