Yes, the second one is fluoxetine, better known as prozac and the third one is duloxetine also known as cymbalta. The first one I have never heard of but it seems to be an anti depressant as well. Fluoxetine is an ssri, ie it works by inhibiting serotonin reuptake and duloxetine is an snri, ie it inhibits both serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake.
.

I've never tried fluoxetine but I took duloxetine for almost a year and it was OK. No major side effects for me except that it made me sleepy at higher doses. The withdrawal can be nasty in some cases if you quit cold turkey.

Why do you ask? Are you taking all three? At the same time?

Doesn't Prozac have a negative interaction with certain adhd medications? Or am I confusing Prozac with another medication

duloxetine seems to be the only one that doesn't have known interactions with your ADHD/ADD medication. I did take it briefly for pain management, but stopped and can't remember why?

No significant interactions that I am aware of.
