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.

A drug used for the treatment of depression, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Due to a few isolated incidences of suicide, it is sometimes considered the most harmful drug on the planet, mostly by people who have none of the mentioned disorders and are under the delusion that sufferers can change their brain chemistry just by thinking it.
If Prozac helps a severely depressed person function, who are you to judge?

A so called "antideppressant" that strips you of your empathy and individuality, and makes you a perfect workhorse for corperate america. Often causes thoughts of suicide.
