In reply to Prozac For Depression And Anxiety, posted by Phillipa on December 1, 2004, at 19:47:49
Prozac does alleviate the depression of most people who take it. So your daughter's response is typical in that regard.
I don't know what the statistics are about antidepressants allowing people to stop drinking. But it makes sense that if you already feel better, you don't need alcohol to make you feel better.
> My Daughter has recently started taking Prozac for depression and anxiety. When the pdoc RX'd it he said it was also good to help stop drinking alchohol. Since she started on it she stopped drinking, started jogging 3 miles, and is able to deal with whatever problems she has without anxiety. Anyone have any further input? Has this been the experience with any others? Thanks. Phillipa
