My doctor is switching me to St. John's Wort and says to quit the Prozac and go straight from 20mg. Prozac to the SJW. I'm a little scared of seratonin syndrome. I also take 50mg. 5HTP at night.
You may have already stopped the Prozac. I would say to wean down the dose of Prozac very slowly. Like bring it down in 5mg increments keeping the dose the same for several days. My opinion is that it would be best to completely stop it and wait for at least a week before starting St John's Wort. I've heard that Prozac stays in you system a long time after you stop it. Maybe even months.
