Do you have Pulmonary Fibrosis while taking Fluoxetine?
Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 days ago):
About four years ago I began getting UTI infections almost once every 8 weeks. Finally a doctor suggested that an antidepressant I had been taking could be causing the problem. I remembered that I had started doubling the dose of that drug (doxepin) about three years before. I stopped taking the doxepin and after one year I had no UTI!!!!! Then about 3 months ago I started working with a doctor on changing my antidepressant. We decided to increase the dose of fluoxetine from 40mg. to 60mg. Within a month I had a bad UTI infection. Although the increased dose of fluoxetine helped with the depression, I was very light headed and jittery. I stopped taking the increased dose and went back down to the 40mgs in hopes that I would not get another UTI. It appears that the percentage of people who experience Urine Retention from Fluoxetine seems relatively low, I am wondering if the increase in the dose I was taking would possibly be related to the sudden UTI after a year of no problems?????
