I do not want to stop cold turkey.
Judy is right...you really need to discuss this with your doctor. Of all the antidepressants Prozac is probably the least likely to cause withdrawal symptoms, but it is still a good idea to wean from it. But it depends on what dose you are taking to know how to step down from it and it also matters if you are going to be taking another antidepressant in its place.
When my son went off of Prozac and onto Celexa...his doctor recommended a two week taper but also gradually introducing Celexa at the same time. So truly it all depends on what your doctor thinks is best for you.
Let us know what happens. Thanks for your question.
Hi, there. Since we aren't medical professionals here, the best advice I can give you is to talk to your doctor about this. Your doctor should also know that you are discontinuing the medication and can give you information on how best to do this and whether or not it's even a good idea.
Sorry I can't be of more help than this, but it really is a discussion to have with your doctor. Thanks for your question.
