Anyone who has went off Prozac??

I have taken Prozac for 8 years, for the exception of maybe 6 months when I tried Effexor. It is no longer working so my Psychiatrist suggested I wean off of it and we try Zoloft. I went from 60 mg to taking 40 mg for 3 days. Then down to 20 for 3 days, then basically stopped. The psychiatrist told me to take 20 mg every other day, but I don't remember for how long so I just stopped it. In the meantime, I also started 25 mg of Zoloft and just increased it to 50 mg 2 days ago. It's been a total of 9 days since the start of these changes. Yesterday and today I seem to be getting much more depressed and I am so tired. Today, if it wasn't for my mom screaming at me to get up off the couch, I would have layed there all day and cried. Has anyone went off Prozac and experienced any symptoms? I know it has a much longer half-life compared to most SSRIs but can't I still experience symptoms??

I stopped taking prozac and went through hell, because I just abruptly stopped taking it, worst time in my life...you did the right thing in weaning off it gradually, and dont worry it will get better
