    Is OK to Take Prozac with Stage 3 CKDIs OK to take Prozac with stage 3 chronic kidney disease? Some patients put forward this question and try to look for the answer. Here, we will talk about this topic in details and if you are interested in this topic, please read on and you will find useful things.

    Prozac (fluoxetine) is an oral drug used for treating depression, bulimia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), pain disorder, and premenstural dysphoric disorder (PMDD). Although this medicine is helpful for treating these diseases, it still has numerous side effects, especially when you have kidney disease. Why? Let’s have a look at the following contents.

    As we all know, kidney disease is divided into five stages. As for Stage 3 CKD, the kidneys has got moderate damage and can not function well. And generally speaking, kidney disease patients won’t experience obvious symptoms until the illness condition has developed into stage 3 kidney disease. Therefore, it is one of critical periods to take effective and immediate measures to stop or delay the progression of illness condition.

    In this condition, if patients insist on taking Prozac, it will increase kidney’s burden and cause the further kidney damage. Meanwhile, it will speed up the deterioration of illness condition, and it is likely to cause Kidney Failure directly or ESRD (Stage 5 kidney disease). Because patients take this kind of medicine for a long time or over dosage, it will lead to numerous side effects which are as followings:

    Allergic reaction: skin rash or hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue or throat.

    Call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as

    1. very stiff muscles, high fever, sweating, fast or uneven heartbeats, tremors, overactive reflexes.

    2. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loos appetite, feeling unsteady and loss of coordination.

    3. Headache, memory loss, weakness, fatigue, seizure and so on.

    4. Sleep problems (insomnia)

    5. Dry mouth
