What is Prozac used for?
Prozac is prescribed to treat mood disorders like major depression and seasonal affective disorder (SAD). It is also used to treat bulimia nervosa, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and panic disorder. These conditions usually develop because of chemical imbalances in the brain and will cause severe emotional distress if left untreated. Prozac cannot cure these conditions, but it can minimize their symptoms by correcting the chemical imbalances so you are able to enjoy family and friends and carry out your daily tasks.
You can buy Prozac (Fluoxetine) online at My Drug Center. We have the Prozac generic, called Fluoxetine available for purchase as well.
