I am already taking 20mg ofprozac and have had NO side effects. My gyn added 10mg of Serafem, actually the same drug as prozac, just marketed for women with PMS stuff. She said the extra 10mg for 2 weeks would help my PMS symptoms.
Would I get sdie effects from the extra 10mg?
  Does anyone know if it gives you the runs?  20mg of prozac didin't.
Thanks

unlikely as your total dose is still low to midrange

Hey Prof,

Another good question for the pharmacist. I hope you'll post his response after your talk to him/her.

well. did ask my pharmacist today about the side effects. He said that the fatigue I am feeling could definately be the extra dose but he doubted the extra bowel movements were.  He said prozac rarely causes GI stuff.  So... I decided to go every other day with the extra 10mg to equal 25 per day since I have capsules and not tablets....  Prof
