Antidepressant Medications

What is Fluoxetine?

Fluoxetine is a type of antidepressant known as an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor).

It is often used to treat depression, and also sometimes obsessive compulsive disorder and bulimia.

Fluoxetine helps many people recover from depression, and it has fewer unwanted effects than older antidepressants.

Fluoxetine is available only on prescription. It comes as tablets and capsules.
