Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi, I'd like to help you with your question.
The best dosage for an adult taking Prozac for anxiety or panic attacks is 20 mg. in the morning. This is based on clinical trials with this drug. This is a good starting dosage.
Because every person's body chemistry is different, it is a good idea to work closely with your doctor to find the right dosage for you. If 20 mg. does not work for you, the next level up is 20 mg BID. What that means is you take 20 mg of the medication twice a day. You can increase your dosage up to 80 mg a day if necessary, although that is not often recommended since long term use of Prozac is not beneficial.
I hope this has helped you,Kate
You're welcome! It is a good idea to wait 4 to 6 weeks to see how you do react. That is the only way to tell if the medication will help you.
My best to you,
