If Prozac helps a severely depressed person function, who are you to judge?
The brand name of a widely marketed antidepressant consisting of the chemical Fluoxetine. It works by binding to the serotonin reuptake receptors in the brain, inhibiting serotonin reuptake and allowing the serotonin to remain in the synapse longer and bind to the serotonin receptors more often, artificially raising the level of serotonin in the brain. This helps improve mood.
Because of its long half-life in the body (1-3 days), Prozac is also useful for preventing brain damage and "fuzziness" associated with Ecstasy use.
