Ive been on prozac 3 yrs this august. 7 months ago was my last period. the last month or so Ive had HORRIBLE hot flashes night and day and night sweats. infrequent night sweats for about 4 yrs. I went from wanting sex several times a day to not caring if I do or not for about 6 months now. MY uncle ( a Dr) suggests I swithch to Wellbutrin and starting birth control pills. I will visit my PA in 2 weeks and want to be informed when I suggest what I want. I am not satisfied with my PA and plan on changing DRs soon. But have to get this problem fixed ASAP
