Flunil is used to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, some eating disorders, and panic attacks (sudden, unexpected attacks of extreme fear and worry about these attacks). Flunil is used to relieve the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder, including mood swings, irritability, bloating, and breast tenderness. Flunil is in a class of medications called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It works by increasing the amount of serotonin, a natural substance in the brain that helps maintain mental balance.
Flunil is usually taken once a day, either every day of the month or on certain days of the month. Take Flunil at around the same time(s) every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take Flunil exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. Your doctor may start you on a low dose of medication and gradually increase your dose. It may take 4 to 5 weeks or longer before you feel the full benefit of Flunil. Continue to take Flunil even if you feel well. Do not stop taking Flunil without talking to your doctor. If you suddenly stop taking Flunil, you may experience withdrawal symptoms such as mood changes, irritability, agitation, dizziness, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, anxiety, confusion, headache, tiredness, and difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Your doctor will probably decrease your dose gradually.
Flunil may cause unwanted side effects such as: nervousness, nausea, dry mouth, sore throat, drowsiness, weakness, uncontrollable shaking of a part of the body, loss of appetite, weight loss, changes in sex drive or ability, excessive sweating.
Talk to your doctor before taking any medicine for pain, arthritis, fever, or swelling. This includes aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, diclofenac, indomethacin, piroxicam, nabumetone, etodolac and others. Taking any of these drugs with Flunil may cause you to bruise or bleed easily.
If overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately.
