Does Anyone Or Can You Take Prozac Every Other Day?
Posted 13 March 2010 - 01:56 PM
I was prescribed 10mg daily and I am normally sensitive to meds. I would like to try 10mg every other day so 5mg daily to start. I have read that the half life is very long with Prozac which is why some are able to do every other day dosing.
Every other day dosing is also suppose to cut back on side effects, so I have read.
Any experiences, info or insight with this are greatly appreciated.

I cannot deal with PAIN in my joints. Prozac is 94% Fluoride which can cause joints to LOCK up and swell up in some people who are too sensitive with it .
I am upset as My MINDSET was in a really good place while I was taking Prozac.
The stresses of my job and family life were really under control.
I lost a few pounds from not stress eating also !!!
I tried Lexapro for a week and it made my joints lock up even worse.
It also has Fluoride in it but supposidly not as much as Prozac ----
I am off the SSRI's right now (which all contain Fluoride ... some less ... some more )
and on Wellbutrin. I tried it before for a week which may have not been enough time to get used to it .
Supposidly Zoloft does not have Fluoride in it , but chloride -- it may or may not react to my body -- If Wellbutrin fails it could be an option.
I am two days in and I feel like crud----
talk to your doctor and see what he/she says ---
I myself have heard that many people can function well with just a small amount of Pro in their systems !!
good luck and keep up posted -----
