Prozac
You are right
prozac is prescribed for the treatment of depression--that is, a continuing depression that interferes with daily functioning.
Prozac is also prescribed to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder.
It has also been used to treat other eating disorders and obesity.

In addition, prozac is used to treat panic disorder, including panic associated with agoraphobia
