Stopping Prozac Cold Turkey


Recommended Posts

I had been taking prozac for 6 weeks for anxiety/depression. However I decided to stop taking it as I felt it was the cause of the insomnia I was having. My therapist agreed that I come off it and said that I should be able to just stop without any tapering. 

I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience of coming off it after 6 weeks and how long it will take for the prozac to leave my system.


Any replied are greatly appreciated.

I didn't realize that could be done (but I'm not a dr).  Is your therapist someone who can prescribe medication?  Don't know where you are but in Canada a therapist is not necessarily a medical doctor who can prescribe.  Just to be sure, would you consider running the suggestion by your family doctor or your pharmacist?
