Question
Hi... I was just prescribed prozac from my doctor . I was reading that it contains flouride and that can affect thyroud function. I have a family history of hyperthyroidism but so far my thyroud has been ok. Should I be concerned that this medication will induce hyperthyroidism  ?

Answer
Lnda,
Dont worry prozac doesnt have any effect on thyroid. I dont see any matter of concern in taking prozac with respect to thyroid functioning.
