I've been on 40 mg of fluoxetine 12 years for OCD. I'm now much improved and would like information on how best to tackle reducing the drug and eventually coming off it without putting myself at risk of a relapse
Laura; you don't even want to do this yourself for a few reasons, One is many times people think they are so much better and not know its the medications holding them back to normal,You should talk to your doctor get his or her Ideas and if you guys decide to go off of this medication the doctor well halp you taper down very slowly is the only way you can do it and take your time doing it to be safe. Best of luck
