All about Prozac

Posted by happyat76 @happyat76, Mar 5, 2018

I just came across this website and the information about Prozac. I thought some of you may be interested in this information, so I thought I should pass it on. The site is Very Well Health (www.verywell.com) and they have lots of great information for you to read.

What is a “therapeutic” dose of Prozac? I recently went from 20 to 30 mg and don’t feel a difference. Talking about going to 40 in a month of I still feel poorly. I too back this up with Clonazepam as needed (2-3 times a week). I don’t want to control anxiety, I want to cure it. I also faithfully meditate, which certainly helps. I have no depression thank goodness.

I take 40 mg Prozac and clonzepam and a few other adjunct meds. I have been told 80 mg is the max dosage of Prozac. I have both depression and anxiety. I believe I inherited this. Although, if I had a healthier upbringing I may have been able to overcome without meds. In my early 20’s I started having panic attacks that changed my life. I am just happy to find something to help. Life is not perfect, but with the right medication it can be much better. It is not always easy to get on right meds. Finding the right prescriber helps.

Is that dosage working well for you? If so, I’ll ask to up mine a notch. And do you need the cl every day to feel well?

Really awesome. I think I am going to ask my Psychiatrist to give me Wellbutrin in place of Valium

Don’t try to taper too fast! Slow is the key to a successful taper! Tapering too fast will most definitely bring on withdrawal symptoms you don’t want to go through. Stay the course.
