I was on effexer and the doc switched me to prozac bc of terriable nightmares. I just wonder since ive been on the effexer for 1month the prozac should start working immediately right??
Wrong, it takes a minimum of 2-3 weeks, for some 4-6 weeks. From my personal experience (which may have nothing to do with yours, so keep that in mind), "energized" is the last thing Prozac will make you feel, so, if after 4 weeks you feel sluggish and unable to think, you'll know it's not for you.
If that's the case, you'll want to be sure you do not stop it abruptly either.
Keep me posted if you like.
