Liquid Prozac

Prozac® (fluoxetine hydrochloride) is a prescription medication commonly used for treating depression, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and bulimia.
 
The medicine comes in two different forms. Prozac liquid is only available in one strength, while Prozac capsules are available in four different strengths. The antidepressant is taken by mouth, usually once or twice a day.
 
The medication acts on a specific chemical within the brain known as serotonin. When the levels of serotonin become unbalanced, it can cause a variety of conditions, including depression. Prozac helps block the reuptake of serotonin so more remains in the space between the brain's nerve cells, giving the serotonin a better chance of activating the receptors on the next nerve cell.
