    My son has been on this medication for 18 months now.

    He has to have something to eat with it or he gets a stomach ache. He always has his medication in the morning with his breakfast.

    They took time to start working but his overall happiness now is so much better. 

    Good luck:)

    I’m not on Prozac, but I am on another drug that is a “take with food” because of upset stomach issues.   I knew the first time I took that it was a lot easier with food.  Everytime I take it without, I’m struggling not to throw up for about 45 minutes.  Try the Prozac once while fasting and without antacids.  You’ll probably figure out whether or not you can handle it.

    I’ve been taking it for 2 years and was never told to take it with food. I just take it before bed and have never had a problem.

    Prozac doesnt bother my stomach at all, and I can get acid easily.

    I have taken it without food and have experienced an upset stomach. I wouldn’t recommend it. I think it can be managed if you drink a lot of water when you take it, or eat a slice of toast. It doesn’t have to be anything major

    I’ve been taking 40 mg of Prozac since June of 2011. I never take it with food! It doesn’t bother me if I do though.
