I'm on my first week on Prozac and was just wondering if 20 mg is a normal amount to start on. Too little? Too much?
Is it normal to start off at 20 mg of Prozac for your first time on this medication?

Yes, 20 mgs a day is a normal starting dose. Your Dr. probably knows about where s/he estimates you will end up as far as dosage goes. The next step would be adding another 20 mgs in the evening if you need it. Usually it takes 4-6 weeks to be sure you're feeling the full effects of the 20 mgs.
