I dont understand how can meds just stop working?

If they have worked for a while they shouldnt just all of a sudden STOP working ??? how is that possible?

Re: I dont understand how can meds just stop working?

From what I understand, this happens often. Your body just gets too used to the meds and they stop working. They call it "pooping out." I've had this happen twice and it's a major bummer. Hang in there, k? (((((hugs)))))

Your body builds a tolerance. The question is when.

This is a lot of Prozac.... Even Peter Kramer M.D. who wrote "Listening To Prozac" voices concern about this much.....
