Coming off Remeron. Starting Prozac
It is best to gradually reduce the Remeron while gradually increasing the Prozac. Some overlap of the two drugs is ok but that must be monitored by the prescribing doctor so to avoid any build up of serotonin in the brain.
You may have heard of MAOI antidepressants, these are the ones that you have to be more careful with when discontinuing one and starting another. Neither the Remeron nor the Prozac are MAOI antidepressants so you are ok on that score.
Hope this helps,
