Sorry my story is not a success as I did not get on with Prozac at all, but others are fine on it. Please wean slowly off of the Effexor. I am taking over a year to wean off. You should be OK with your Dr's help. I have read about others who have done what you are doing. Good luck. Let us know how you get on.

Hi I have recently gone onto prozac as well after trying many others and after about 3 months and 60mg per day am not feeling confident about prozac. , I keep saying to my gp and pysch i am NOT depressed but the anxiety is so overwhelming and the depression is secondary to that. how mucgh prozac are u taking ? can i ask how long they wean you off the effexor ? mine was a quick changeover and they stopped giving me xanax at the same time ... it was horrible and i dont want to go through that again. but personally dont feel the prozac is for me, i cant sleep and am tired all the time
, have no appetite ( am quite slim as it is and losing weight fast ). SO have decided to go back to the mirtazapine that i previously took... let me know how u go. good luck
