Does Prozac inhibit serotonin production?

e.g. useful for suicidal depressives, turns them into murderers?

Answer:
No.

Prozac is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), which is one and the same class of drugs as Zoloft.

Prozac works by (believe it or not) inhibiting the reuptake of serotonin in effrontery synapses. A primary cause of clinical depression is a ruin to produce enough serotonin. So what happen is that SSRIs allow serotonin to stay in the synapses and trigger the serotonin receptors multiple times. This mimics the behavior of a typical synapse, and so allows the person's serotonin-activated neurons to function more normally.
