drug side effect
hey guys been bodybuilding for about 4 years and put on some serious mass this past summer. 19 years old and went away to college for freshman year. at school i was put on prozac for depression induced by accutane which i took in may. while i took prozac i noticed my chest lost its shape. i have no inner chest anymore and it really does not look how it used to. keep in mind i have a very very gifted chest genetically and it was very well built and had great shape. inner, outer, upper and lower were all built proportionally and it was something i took pride in. it seems now whatever exercises i do i just cant get it back to the way it used to look. ive gotten really self conscious and it made me lose all my motivation in the gym. i eventually stopped going for quite some time and lost 20lbs. of mass. this is the most frustrated i have ever been in my life. i have worked to build my frame for years and it is dissappointing to see it go away for no apparent reason. if you guys have any answers, explanations or opinions on this it would greatly be appreciated. i wanna go see a doctor but im afraid he would not know what the cause was and would just tell me to keep working on it. do you think prozac could have changed my muscle fibers permanently. im scared i might have really screwed up my body and am freaking out. all posts are welcomed. thanks guys!!

I haven't heard anything like that being caused by Prozac (though I have no experience with it).
My advice would be to just get back in the gym, switch up your routine to something you enjoy, and just have fun with it. Don't worry about the mirror or scale for a while (easier said than done; believe me, I know). Do this and focus on eating enough and good foods and just run with that for a while.
It seems like simple advice, but just try not to worry about it and be happy, bro.Psalm 34:10 - "The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing."
