Prozac Problem by Jason Aull

A guy walks into a psychiatrist’s office. The psychiatrist asks him “have you ever taken fluoxetine?” The guy says “no, I’ve never tried that.” The psych doctor writes out a prescription for fluoxetine. Two weeks later the guy goes back to the psychiatrist. He says “doc for the last two weeks I’ve been feeling great. I was on top of the world. Then yesterday I felt like killing myself. I’ve never felt this way since I was taking Prozac.”

Psychiatry is insane. Some of us are crazy enough to find it funny.
