Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr Love and I will be glad to assist you today.
Yes, it is fine to take the Prozac every other day to get to a lower dose. The Prozac is actually a very long acting drug, with a half-life of several days, so it is fine to take it every other day.
Many of the side effects will ease as your body gets used to the drug, but if the side effects persist, then your doctor will likely prefer to change to a different medicine.
If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
Yes, anxiety can cause burning skin sensations and will commonly contribute to an acid irritation syndrome, not only acid reflux, but also gastritis or ulcers.
Actually, anxiety can cause burning skin sensations anywhere, which is why I was able to provide the above answer without knowing the location of the burning sensation.
Yes, it can. Anxiety can cause virtually any subjective neurologic symptom, and can be of such severity that someone can think that they are having a stroke.
It takes 3-4 weeks for the full effect of any dose to build up in the body, and the doctor can then decide whether a higher dose is necessary.
