Why did my doctor put me on Prozac if I´m not depressed?

Prozac and FMS

Doctors commonly prescribe Prozac for fibromyalgia, not necessarily because the patient is depressed, but because Prozac is what is called a serotonin reuptake inhibitor. Fibromyalgia patients have an imbalance of serotonin in their systems, which the Prozac helps to correct.

I took the herbal version of prozac and it made me more sick. I prefer to use SAM-e. Not all Fibromites can use the same products. I find that it's better to try different things till the one that works the best shows up.
