    Hi again, country,


    Prozac isn't FDA approved for anxiety, but is sometimes prescribed off-label for anxiety. A common issue with Prozac is that it seems to stop working after a while for many people. It's common enough that the phrase "Prozac poop-outs" is often used to describe any medication that has stopped working.


    When you discuss your options with your doctor, you might want to ask about Zoloft and Lexapro. They're both FDA approved for anxiety disorder, and a new study ranked them as the best among the newer antidepressants. You can read more about that study HERE.


    Good luck,
