Do you mean a Naturopathic Doctor (ND), a graduate of one of the 8 naturopathic schools in the northern hemisphere who is licensed in the state in which they practice?

Thanks for the additional information.

Then any fluoxetine (Prozac) left in your system will not interfere with any tests that an ND will make. Prozac has a long half life so it takes 3-4 weeks to be absolutely, completely after your system. However, it doesn't interfere with tests even if it has been a shorter period of time since you've stopped taking it.

Best regards,
