Hello, I hope your days are going well. I started taking 20mg of Prozac for the first time today. My sister's boyfriend pointed out that I had some redness on the sides of neck; it feels slightly itchy and slightly burning. I noticed an itchy scalp as well, but it's only been a few hours. When I took it, it was with ibuprofen for some leg pain (400 mg). I couple of days ago I also started out on Amoxicillin 500mg, Sudogest 120mg, and some Ofloxacin ear drops for my ear/sinus infection. One of each has been taken today. I also drank a big *** Rockstar energy drink a few hours ago, which in retrospect, might be the cause of this, but I typically don't have this response. I'm feeling alert (more than I'm used to), a little more sociable, and a little happier. Other than that, my heart rate is high, I'm a bit shaky (which isn't completely abnormal given my caffeine-rich diet), a bit sweaty (again, not too abnormal for me, just a little more so), a bit restless, my constipation is no longer an issue, blurred vision, and yet I'm yawning a bunch. It's certainly a weird feeling, I feel warmth coming from the inside, it's kind of a comforting warmth. I wouldn't say my mouth is dry, but it's certainly less moist. There was a banging noise earlier that agitated me a little quicker than usual, but the other annoying noises haven't been too bad. I put some ice on the rashes and it calmed it down a little. The rest is ineffable, I just feel weird, different, like I'm certainly on something, haha.
I've read around and have gotten different responses, some worrying, some not so much, so I thought I'd reach out.
It could be just the energy drink just screwing with what the prozac is trying to accomplish.
