Hi, you are speaking with Dr Jonathan. Sorry to hear about your issue. How long have you been on Prozac, and at what dose?

My phone has a broken screen sorry can’t right now
Pharmacist: Dr. Jonathan Yilmaz, Pharmacist replied 7 months ago

I see. It can take up to about 4 months for SSRI's to take effect. I would wait just a bit longer to see if it starts to help. If not, you have some options. You can speak to your doctor about increasing the dosage. Or, you can get prescribed something that you take only at the times when you feel anxiety. Your doctor can help you decide which is a better option for you.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
