Fluoxetine is an antidepressant with a stimulating effect. It reduces the symptoms of depression and stabilizes a psychological/emotional state, and has many other features. This antibiotic improves mood, lowers tension, anxiety and fear.
But the main advantage of Fluoxetine is not a stimulating action. This antidepressant does not provide a sedative action on the body. Even a long-term treatment does not cause sleepiness, low physical activity, and other symptoms. Moreover, the use of Fluoxetine does not cause hypotension and does not influence on the work of the cardiovascular system. It is important in patients at old age because most of them have some diseases of the cardiovascular system.
An antidepressive effect of Fluoxetine is soft and is slowly developed. A patient need 2-3 weeks in order to see the improvement of the mood. But this antidepressant has another important plus. Due to the stimulating action, Fluoxetine influences on the center of the satiation and reduces appetite. Taking this medicine, patient can improve an emotional state and lose weight.
But do not take this medicine in order to lose weight. A weight loss is just a side effect that appears as a result of the stimulation of some parts of the brain.

- Depression of various origins
- Obsessive-compulsive disorders
