I am really heartened by your positive accounts. I am about to start taking Fluoxetine for PMS and menopausal symptoms of anxiety and depression, but I am worried about needing it forever. I worry too that when I need to come off it at some point, it'll be very being difficult to do so. I understand it's very hard to stop taking as the withdrawal is hard, so the dose is reduced very slowly over time. This I find worrying. What's your experiences? Did you stop taking it after the menopause? Thanks in advace
