... been feeling so low. Do u think they might of stopped working. Thanks Barbara
The first antidepressant I was ever prescribed was Prozac. After a lifetime of crushing depression, it was as though I'd come into the light from darkness. I took it for 7 years when I began to notice the effects wearing off. That was when it had just come out and SSRIs were fairly new. I'd moved to another state from the original prescribing doctor and the one I had poo - poohed my claim that i thought it was no longer working. As I got more and more depressed, I knew that was the problem, and soon after I changed jobs which meant a change in health insurance plan and doctors. My new pdoc who was also a psychopharmacologist agreed it was true that Prozac can stop working after a number of years and we worked together to find a new drug that worked for me. So yes, fluoxetine can indeed stop working, at least it did in my case. Hope you find something equally helpful. I've heard Wellbutrin (buproprion) works well without as many side effects as many others and has a cheap generic. Good luck!
