Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
small amount of blood in urine; pain when urinating; symptoms occurring only 1 day so far
From this study (4 days ago):
Was prescribed lithium for bipolar disorder. Lithium impacted thyroid levels. TSH rose to reading of 52. (should not exceed 4.5) Lithium use suspended, Synthroid added to combat thyroid condition.
Severe joint pain ensued, first in left shoulder, left hand & left knee. Followed soon thereafter by same pain in right shoulder & right hand. (finger joints) Shoulder pain so severe that I could not retrieve wallet from rear pants pocket nor could I easily put on coat or long sleeve shirt.
Suspended Statin use & within 3-5 weeks, shoulder pain & range of motion improved to 90% of normal. Pain/stiffness in finger joints has not improved. Cannot make tight fist!!

I went off all my physc meds 6 months ago. My doctors started me back on them. I am 54. I got a uti and am not able to get rid of it. Process of elimination leads only to the effect that Prozac is causing it. There is nothing new to my diet. I've been on Cipro 1000mg
Libby C on Apr, 5, 2012:
Prozac causes urinary retention which can cause UTIs!! Constant UTIs can cause Interstatial Cystitus, which may have to be treated for life. If you have suffered from this join with me in starting a class action suit.
