Customer Question
I have been taking...

I have been taking fluoxetine 80 mg. for several years. 3 months ago I unwittingly doubled the dose to 160 when I mistook a capsule for a lower dose. Yesterday I cut back to 80 mg. and don't feel too good.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I take gabapentin 1800 mg. for nerve pain. Allergic to sulfa and codeine.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
