Hi Brian,

Prozac is by prescription only, so unfortunately there is no way around seeing a doctor to get it.

I can recommend some OTC treatments, like St. Johns Wort that you can get without a prescription. This herb has been used with success in treating depression and can be purchased online or at a drug store near you.

Please let me know if this has been helpful to you. I understand you were probably hoping to get a prescription, so just let me know if you'll be needing a refund. If you'd like to continue, though, just reply and I will be more than happy to help. Thanks!
