Stopping Prozac

I started taking prozac about 5 years ago for PMDD. I am now in peri-monopause and want to stop taking it to see how I do. My doctor said to slowly wean myself so I don't go through withdrawal. She also put me on hormones but I already stopped them because I felt worse. I have been faeeling awful, feel like I have PMS all the time, but really want to try without the meds. I am thinking about stopping everything for a while to see...is that dangerous? How would I know if I am in withdrawal from prozac?
