    my question is wether it is harmful to use fluoxetine long term
    Patricia Farrell, PhD responded:
    This is a question that you need to ask of whoever was prescribing the medication for you. Usually, this medication is used for anxiety and depression but there are probably a number of off-label uses too.
    life_4_fit replied to Patricia Farrell, PhD's response:
    the person who prescribe this medication for me was one of my friends. he is not a plz guide me what are the side effects of long term use
    Caprice_WebMD_Staff replied to life_4_fit's response:
    You should never be using a medication which is not specifically prescribed to you by a doctor. Your doctor knows your medical history and can help guide you to any necessary treatment.

    Please discuss all of this with your own medical provider.
