I'm not well versed in psychopharmacology and such, but if I
recall correctly, the effects of Prozac are HIGHLY dependant upon the
user. Unfortunately, it's a trial and error situation. One never knows
what the effects will be until one tries it. Personally, unless one is
experimenting with it for the sake of observing the outcome, I believe
that there are many more controlled, well researched and more desirable
drugs that will provide effects of mood alteration and cognitive
manipulation. I hear that the effects of Prozac are in most cases extreme
though, despite the type of effect.
