... to her mothers house around 10 and her mother had her take another one before 9 this morning... she is on a one pill every 24 hrs, how dangerous is that? Her mother said she made her take one this morning because she is having a hard time holding food down at night. I just want to make sure this is not doing more harm than good, we thought if she just waited an hour after dinner and then giving her a pill, she would be fine. Please advise.
Hi, deefury! Prozac is often prescribed at 60mg/day and your stepdaughter is probably taking an initialization dose. Especially if the doses were taken about 8hrs apart no harm would be done.
Still, this situation is not ideal ~ you're correct in having her wait after a meal. Prozac can cause nausea/vomitting for the first few days so coating the stomach with dinner makes sense.
