I'm happy for you and wish you the best in maintaining your current good feelings. One word of advice if the Prozac starts to poop is to consider a mood stabiliser. Lithium has helped me with my recurrent AD poop problem (although I'm currently feeling pretty poopy).
I have a great suggestion for an exercise routine that has worked very well for both myself and husband. I gained over 20 lbs since December from Remeron and Lithium and in desparation surfed the web and came upon Oxycise. The website is www.oxyciseplus.com. I ordered all the videos from Amazon.com where they were a little cheaper and am now up to level III. They only take 15 minutes a day and you don't have to put on the gym shoes, clothes, or drive anywhere. I also try to get in yoga, walking and other forms of exercise, but I can truly say that these videos are the only thing I do consistently and with gratifying results. They work on a specialized breathing method and the extra prana and oxygen help anyway. The fact that my husband also actually wants to do the workouts is pretty amazing in itself. Good luck. - Barbara
