What is Prozac used for?
Prozac is considered a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant. It’s used to treat major depressive disorder, bulimia nervosa, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Prozac works by affecting chemicals in the brain which may be unbalanced, leading to the disorders listed above. It can also be used in combination with other medications, such as Zyprexa, to treat manic depression caused by bipolar disorder, more effectively—though this is typically only applied when other treatments have been unsuccessful.
