I have been on 40mg Fluoxetine for about a year but i found it too stimulating really so have switched over to amitriptyline 10mg. So i have stopped taking fluoxetine 8 days ago, when is it safe to up the amitriptyline dose as i know it will take more than 10mg to affect my anxiety significantly? I know fluoxetine has a long half life so this is why i ask. Thanks!
The top end half life of prozac is a week. Total elimination is about ten days. The drug does not have to be 100% gone to start a triptyline. Consult and follow a doctors instructions closely.
Its safe to up it. The fluoxetine is decreasing steadily 10 mg of amitriptyline is miniscule.
