Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
A psychiatrist (not my prescribing one) stepped me off Prozac several months ago on my first visit, with my full withdrawl ending in February. I'm in the military and got moved across the country in March. When I came off he told me to keep a month or so supply just in case things got bad again and to start back if they did scheduling an appointment to get in. Things have got very bad (I have a consult pending to see a psychiatrist) but haven't even been able to ask an MD this question, my corpsman (think nurse) wasnt sure either so I am here for help. I was well managed over 18 months on Prozac with the last 12 (excluding February) @ 30mg per day dosage, my last step in getting off Prozac was 10mg daily for one week. Is it safe for me to get back on prior to my visit and if so what dosage should I be taking? I have 165 10mg pills. My diagnosis was eposodic, recurring depression.
