Discussions that mention prozac

Depression board


I used to take effexor xr for almost a year. I tried to tapper off like the doctor told me to do. I fell like a ton of bricks. I went back to the doctor and told him that I tried to stop taking this med because of the side effects. The dreams were scary. Now I am on Prozac 40mg a day. I have been taking it for about 2 weeks now. Any one have any comments on prozac?

i've been on a quite a few anti-depressants over the past ten years or so. prozac is the one i keep going back to, as it is the only one from which i've noticed any improvement. personally, effextor didnt' make a difference at a for me. i'm currently on a rather high dose of prozac - 100mg/day. i'm still depressed, but some of mine is situation, which can't really be remedied by a medication...
