Depression can happen all of a sudden, during prolonged stress, emotional overfatigue, or deficit of certain chemical ingredients in the brain. Many people feel the symptoms of the acute depression 2-3 times per year. In order to resist a depressive disorder, Prozac can be used.
Prozac is a brand name of Fluoxetine. This is a strong antidepressant which regulates the level of serotonin in the tissues of the brain. The mechanism of the pharmacological action is conditioned by blocking the serotonin reuptake, so that the concentration of this neurotransmitter is increased in the tissues of the brain.
The increase of serotonin under the action of Prozac causes an improvement of the emotional state of a patient: anxiety, fear, and depression go away, the mood is improved, the normal sleep is restored, and the sensitivity to the stress is changed.
Prozac does not provide a stimulating action because it does not bind to dopamine receptors and receptors of noradrenaline. It also does not have intense sedative and soporific action, and therefore it does not inhibit the functions of the central nervous system and does not require a restriction in the physical and mental activities.
The antidepressive effect occurs within 1-3 weeks. This period is individual, depending on the sensitivity to the action of Prozac and severity of the depressive disorder.
Uses and doses
Prozac is used for the symptomatic treatment of the acute and chronic depression of any severity (light, mild, severe). The medicine can be also used to arrest the symptoms of the obsessive-compulsory disorder.
Depending on the type of the psychological disorder, the daily dose is selected. The pills should be used in the morning, before breakfast. If you take high doses, the daily dose should be divided into 2-3 times.
- If depression of light or mild severity, it is enough to take one pill of Prozac 20 mg per day
- If severe depression, the daily dose can be increased up to 60 mg of Prozac per day
- If obsessive-compulsory disorder, it is also recommended to take Prozac 40-60 mg depending on the severity of the symptoms
The dosage regimen can be adjusted and the symptoms of the disease can be controlled within the entire therapeutic course.
