I am taking prozac now because I have severe depression and other things that I can't not post on here. It really scared me to death when i took the risperdal medication. I almost died because of severe allergic reaction. I'm glad that I don't take that anymore. The ER doctor and nurse saved my life and as a christian God saved my life too. It took me 2 weeks to recover. On my emergency contact list I put down all the medicaiton that I'm allergic to. So far, I don't notice any side effect from prozac.
