  • An antidepressant that is part of the class of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Also called fluoxetine, it acts by blocking the absorption and removal of serotonin from neural synapses without affecting other neurotransmitters. It is used for the treatment of clinical depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bulimia, and panic disorder. It has generally been proven to be effective in clinical trials, and its side effects tend to be minimal. Though its widespread popularity has not been without controversy, this drug is generally seen to be efficacious in treating particular forms of mental distress. For more information, see Wong, Bymaster, and Engleman (1995).
