I'm taking Prozac for depression and I still feel depressed
Expert:  Dr. Z replied 1 year ago.

What is the dose of the Prozac and how long have you been taking it? Have you taken any other medications before Prozac?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
20 mg and been on it for a year
Expert:  Dr. Z replied 1 year ago.

Your doctor can definitely increase the Prozac to a more effective dose as 20mg/day is a low dose. The maximum dose for Prozac is 80mg/day. You should discuss with your doctor that you are still feeling depressed both cognitively and emotionally and he/she will increase your dose of the Prozac.
