What is it
Generic Fluoxetine is an antidepressant, one of the most widely prescribed drugs of that kind in the world. It is prescribed for treatment of major depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bulimia nervosa, panic disorder and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. It is also used in treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, trichotillomania, alcoholism, cataplexy, obesity and binge eating disorder.
Classification and Mechanism of Action
The active ingredient of this drug is fluoxetine hydrochloride, an antidepressant that belongs to the class of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI). Like other SSRIs, it affects neurotransmitters, more precisely serotonin, which either attaches itself to the receptors on the surrounding nerves or goes back to the nerve that produced it, where it is taken back up and re-released (this is called re-uptake). Most experts agree that the imbalance of these neurotransmitters is the main culprit for depression. Fluoxetine reduces the uptake and increases the stimulation of nerve cells by the free serotonin.
Looking after it
Generic Fluoxetine must be kept away from sources of direct heat, sunlight and moisture and stored at room temperature, away from the reach of children.

Generic Fluoxetine 20 mg is an oral drug, taken by mouth, with some water, usually once per day. If it causes stomach problems, it can be taken with meals.
