When you say "Prozac drugs," what, exactly, do you mean? Prozac is a registered trademark and not the generic name of a family of drugs. Do you, by chance, mean "antidepressant drugs?" I've been using Prozac itself since 1992 and the only side-effects that I've noticed are consistent damage to the pocketbook (the same health plan that lets me buy 60 hits of Fioricet for under two bucks charges over $52.00 for sixty hits of Prozac) and random instances of dry-mouth and stomach-upset. And, by random, I mean really random, like once every two or three months or so. I've had cluster pain since before Prozac was invented (1956) and I still have it, now. Prozac hasn't affected my clusters, one way or the other. Given how much you have to pay for it and the fact that it doesn't do anything, at least in my experience, with respect to clusters, I absolutely wouldn't even try Prozac as an anti-cluster med nor would I try to blame it for clusters. However, if your problem is depression, it's well worth a try. It may make a hell of a difference in your life. Or it may not. You never know.
