... horrible. He is on 40 mg. He is weaning off and taking one every other day.How soon should he drop down at this point? Any advice would be appreciated
Hi, Melinda! Has your husband consulted his physician? First, it's not uncommon for a drug to *wear off* over long periods of time and sometimes a simple dosage adjustment can solve the problem. Second, one should NEVER wean or taper off a psychiatric medication without the guidance of his doctor. Third, weaning off the Prozac my cause an even worse rebound depression than what he already has.
Best wishes to you both, WCV
