I sent a reply, but it didn't show up. Anyway the attitude at the Univ. outpatient clinic where I go is: try to tolerate all side effects that may go away with time. I don't have experience with Prozac, but I almost stopped Effexor many times during the first 4 weeks I was on it due to bad side effects. They all went away or are very minor now. Glad I didn't quit, as it is helping me. I'm surprised that someone with Prozac experience hasn't replied. As you may know this site has a lot of people who will tell you all of the horrible things that antidepressants will do to you , but relatively few who tell of successes.
Just keep that in mind.
