teemarie, believe me stopping it will be better than continuing. You will be okay. I stopped Prozac too after a week. I didn't like it. xx
I feel really sick
teemarie, I know. With only having been on it a couple days, it should get out of your system quickly. Make sure you eat and drinking fluids to help flush it out especially now that you've stopped. Prozac is a good, long time used drug, but not for everyone. It cannot harm you now that you've stopped. Keep telling yourself that so you don't continue to work yourself up. Tomorrow you will feel better than today. xx
Dear, you won't go through withdrawals with just that small amount in you for a couple days.
Ok teemarie, I was checking on the half life of Prozac. Good news in that it has a long half life which makes it the easiest SSRI to get off of. (they're talking long term use) The reason is because it slowly dissipates from your body making it less symptomatic.
I was on it years ago with no side effects and no withdrawal issues either. Will see what doc says during the week. Thanks Agora x
greeneyes, everyone is so different in how their body accepts drugs. That is one of the reasons I never tell someone starting a new drug that I may have had an adverse reaction to it. It is always best to keep an open mind when taking medication. Once they tell me they didn't like it, then I will open up that I didn't either. Take care dear. xx
Thanks, how are you feeling yourself these days?
