Prozac affects different people differently, at least from the 4 or 5 people I know who have taken it.

Personally, it helped with depression and anxiety when I took it for about 2 years, but it made me want to sleep 18 hours a day. My motivation was also decreased, but that may have been my underlying depression.

I don't know if that helps you or not.
