It is probably too late for inducing vomiting to be helpfulExpected symptoms are lethargy , vomiting, rapid heart rate, vocalization, and seizures. If he has seizures, he will need to be treated at a veterinary clinic with IV valium to control the seizures until the fluoxetine wears off. The prescription medication cyproheptadine many help with other symptoms.If you would like to call veterinary poison control (they have the largest data base of information) the number is(###) ###-####I would take him to your veterinarian for activated charcoal, cyproheptadine and to be monitored for seizures.Please let me know if this is helpful and what other questions you may have.
