Hi, amik! 20mg to 80mg daily is the standard maintenance dose for Prozac. Psychotropic drugs are not dosed by the patient's weight but rather by their individual response to the medication.
Best wishes, Wildcat

amik; I agree with the wildcat, Most people do pretty good on the lower dose like the 20m to 40mg daily. But the doctor well starts you low and gradually work you up to where you get the most benefits from the dose your on. Just remember that for the first 2 weeks the effects they are trying to help you with sometimes get even worse like more anxiety etc not everyone but some do, Just be aware of this and also the effects get better after 10 to 14 days, then you start to feel some of the benefits. Also remember not to change the dose without talking to the doctor. And it helps a lot to take this medication about the same time each day. Hope you get to feeling better this helps many just follow the doctor's orders. Chuck1957
