Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
I take Prozac for depression, Atenolol Chlorthalidone for hypertension, and Valium as needed for stress. I also Vasovagal when stressed, which is becoming more frequent as I get older. Can I take a Valium in preparation for stressful situations, or does that exacerbate my tendency to Vasovagal under stress?
From this study (10 months ago):
My daughter is 15 years old and woke up on March 28, 2013 with terrible back pain. There were no injuries or accidents to explain this. She had never suffered with pain like this before and it literally happened overnight! It has been 74 days now. Her doctor increased her prozac from 20 to 30 mg for her anxiety. I can't remember the exact date she was increased but it was definitely right around the time all this pain started. She has progressively gotten worse to the point that she had to stop physical therapy because it was too painful. She has had many tests including an MRI, ultrasound, xrays and a lot of blood work. Everything comes back normal!!!! Could the increase of prozac be causing her pain? She had been taking the 20mg for 2 years and had no problems with her back. Could a 10 mg increase give her severe back pain overnight?
From this study (5 years ago):
