I took Fluoxetine (prozac) for 3 weeks and made the mistake of drinking an energy drink while I was one it. I had a lot of bad side effects from it and my hole body went numb I could hardly breath my heart slowed down really so an I couldnt even tell if my body was even workin cuz I couldnt feel anything from head to toe. I felt parilized an my vission was blury. i could here but couldnt respond it felt as if I was dead and it scared me. after the energy drink wore off I developed a tick jerks and jitters. kinda like my nerves were jumping but they went away after 2 weeks.I have been off the meds for 27 days now and my body still hurts. every musle is sore an I still have a little trouble breathing. I stay tired an want to do nothing but sleep all the time. I was told that the meds would b out of my system 99% in 25 days and its been longer than that and Im still geting the side effects. sometimes I dont want to even walk because it hurts to even move. what can I do and should I be concerned about the fact the side effects wont go away after the 25 days.

Hi MulysaLove,

If you are still experiencing these adverse effects from the drug then you need to contact your prescribing doctor as soon as possible. 

Please keep us posted,

Rosa
