my wife has been taking fluoxetine daily for many years. She may have abruptly stopped taking it in late December. since the first of the year she has exhibited frenetic activity, agressiveness, and what I would describe as manic behavior. Could these symptoms be explained by the abrupt cessation of flouxetine?
As you are aware it is recommended to stop taking fluoxetine and other antidepressants gradually under medical supervision, if not people could have withdrawal symptoms like your wife is having, mood swings, anxiety, flu-like symptoms, nausea, etc.
I suggest your wife sees a Dr.
