Lorien - Prozac
I am currently using Lorien tablets. The doctor subscribed it because i sleep a lot and suffer from depression. But since taking the tablets i sleep even more. Is this normal or must i discontinue the tablets. I've been using the tablets for 1,5 weeks. I'm a 23 year old male.

Ash, I think the best would be to hold out for a bit and see what happens. If you’re still sleepy after 4 weeks you should ask him to change you to another anti-depressant that doesn’t sedate you as much. Good luck.
