I recently started taking Sarafem, and I was a little surprised that it is literally Prozac with a new name. I was not too pleased with the fact that my Doctor failed to mention that to me.

On the second day I took it, my left arm would periodically go numb, I dropped things, moved slow, staggered, and the despair I felt was totally different from anything I've ever dealt with before. I'm happy that I had the frame of mind to go over to a friends house to take my mind off the negative feelings I had. Very scary experience.

The numbness is still happening periodically (I've been taking it for 4 days), but the other side effects are gone now. I'm more than likely going to ask my doctor about Zoloft or Celexa, which have been recommended by a lot of people.
