I googled flluoxetine withdrawal. There is so much information that it would take me hours to explain, not that I wouldn't. The one thing I kept reading over and over again is that it is a generic form of Prozac. Another thing, which we all know is vital, is to talk to your Dr.. If you have time to run this search, I think you would be enlightened. My prayers are with you, tatter08 Stay in touch. I'd like to know the outcome, if you care to share. pickles503
Please do not go cold turkey from the fluoxetine. You may experience diarrhea, nausea, headache with brain zap sensations (don't know how else to explain it), to name just a few of the symptoms. It is always best to taper off this type of medication while under a doctor's care as the symptoms of the original illness for which you were taking the med may return.
