My DD has been on Prozax (fluoxetine) - and yes, itchiness was one of the early symptoms, although it passed fairly quickly. Have a Google - there are loads of side effects but in DD's case the benefits definately outweighed them.

Hi YG I have googled and it does list itching as a possible side effect.

How long have you been taking them?

I think it can take a couple of weeks before they start to work.

Hope that the itching is not too troublesome for you.

how long have you been taking them? have you had the skin itching from when you first started on them?

keep an eye on it in case it turns out into a rash - IIRC a meds allergic rash is most likely to be on your chest. IIRC another MNetter had an allergic rash to Prozac after a while on it, so got taken off it.

speak to the docs (you would usually have an appointment after 1 month on them anyway), most side effects are usually while your body is getting used to them during first two weeks.

I would ask GP about it, should be down for a review 4-6wks after being put on it as should now be able to tell if it is the righ AD for you.
