Hello- Thank you for asking the question. I have over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families & am happy to reply.
I am sorry to hear about this.
This is a starting dosage for Prozac and the medication can take 4-6 weeks for it to have its full effect.
The symptoms are consistent with some of the side effects that can occur when starting the medication however, my sense is that the out of body experience may be more related to the stop of using alcohol.
If your friend has been drinking on a regular basis and stopped abruptly he could be experiencing alcohol withdrawal
symptoms. (it is true that people taking Prozac) should refrain from excessive alcohol usage.
I think your friend should consult his doctor by phone - today and get feedback regarding what he should to to augment these negative symptoms.
More information on Prozac is here:http://www.pdrhealth.com/drugs/prozac
I trust this will help provide helpful information and direction.
I wish you and your friend the very best,
Kindest regards, Bill
