Hi Danni,

I've been on Prozac for almost two months now, and I did go through the dizzy feelings.  They slowly wore off as my body got used to the medication.  I came down with a cold after a couple of weeks on the meds, and it felt like one of the worst colds I have had - just like I was completely knocked out tired.  I think it had to do with the Prozac because it was just a normal head cold. 

After about 3 weeks or so I started experiencing that wonderful well-being feeling (even though I still had a few minor side effects going on).  I was so happy I started Prozac, it has definitely done wonders.  It doesn't take away all of your fears, just kind of numbs them down and helps stop all of the negative "brain chatter".

How many milligrams are you taking per day?

When I started Prozac 10mg, I got sinusitus/a really bad cold which lasted for about a week. That was the only side effect I had which I was quite surprised with haha.

I've been on Prozac a number of times - my fave med of choice when I was able to take them.

Dizziness and off balance feeling was an initial side effect.  I bet your other symptoms are a cold or as you mention, sinusitus.
