From this study (3 months ago):
Prozac literally makes me want to kill a bunch of people. Doctor made me get off of it, and I did. I feel much better now. I want to see if anyone else had these symptoms. I turned into a stone cold person. It was insane the feeling I got from being on it. Almost like I was demented.
