  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • My 19 yr old daughter is a Type 1 diabetic since the age of three. She has been having dizzy spells where she says she feels nauseous and like she's going to pass out about once a day around dinner time. Does not correlate with blood sugars but her blood pressure drops to around 94/72 with a heart rate of 122. Could this be related to Prozac that she's been on for years?

    I would say yes it is the Prozac. My D's daughter has been on it for six months just starting developing nausea when standing up that is how I researched hypotension and found this website. She will be taken off of it for sure

  • I am taking 200mg of neutapin, 20mg of Clonazepam in the evening, and 40mg of fluoxetine in the morning. I feel uncontrollable muscle movements, anxiety, feels like fainting , nausea, resless legs, waking up sevetal times while sleeping, drowsy, weight gain, and most importantly rapid heart beat and fear of dying of low blood pressure I already had before the treatment. I am afraid of cardiac arrest or shock.
