sincerely, a person who has been on prozac for 9 years
this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow
This is all very true, though I would like to caution that sometimes there’s no ‘perfect fit’ SSRI so you have to try to minimize side effects instead of finding a medication with absolutely none. But the minor side effects I deal with are completely worth it for me to be able to function like a normal human being.
