I do have a doctor who prescribe me Prozac, I don't have any other medical conditions. I'm fairly fit and healthy. I do take other medicines omeprazole 20 mg for heartburn and oxybutynin 2.5mg for sweating as Prozac really makes me sweat even in the uk. I want to try Wellbutrin but my doctor won't prescribe it. I have an appointment my psychologist but that could take ages. Your advice would be helpful. Thanks martin
