Does prozac usually make you sleepy?
When is the best time of day to take it?

Prozac is usually taken in the morning. "Sleepy" is not listed as a side effect in the PDR (Physician's Desk Reference).

Always take your medications according to your physicians instructions and if you have a question about side effects your pharmacy should have provided you with a patient education sheet when you were prescribed the med. You may always check with your pharmacist.

I hope this helps withyour question :)

Yes, your answer is better than the pharmacy printout by far. I'm taking it in the morning but by noon again today, I was ready to sleep. Which isn't what I want, I'm totally trying to stay away from being sleepy during the days.

Thanks for answering :)

So I guess I should stop taking it at night! I have been having trouble sleeping too! On my prescription it says to take it at bedtime. I guess my MD made an error. lol.

Ahh the fun we have. Wait, but I take the wellbutrin in the morning. Do you think that's too much at one time? My neurotransmitters may just pack up and leave. :-)
