Could you put this in a form of a question?
It is very likely that the improvement was not from the medicine but from what is called the placebo effect-the hope that it will work. You should really give it more time as it usually takes 3-6 weeks to begin to work. Best wishes and good luck.
If you require further clarification or more information, feel free to ask!

I have answered this several times, but there may be a computer glitch. I will retry. You may be one of the rare people that prozac takes effect quicker than normal which is 3-6 weeks. I would stay at the 20 mgs and let the doctor slowly raise it in order to avoid side effects. Hopefully in time you will get the desired effect.
If there is something I can answer, please ask. I will ask JA to refund your fee if you were not satisfied
