So the reduction is 0.15  I think 

 

Given Prozac's long half-life, a dosage chance can take a week or so to attain full effect. Over the last 3 days, it seems the activation (headache, etc.) has been a bit less?

Seems the Prozac dose might have been too high. Please keep monitoring daily for a week, could be you need even less.

Hi Powerback, 

 

Glad you’re getting into healthy, clean eating. You better get used to receiving compliments, because we can all see what a kind soul you are💚

Been on antipsychotics, benzos, antidepressants and painkillers for chronic pain. 

Been cold turkeyed and put on and off all sorts of things. Was suicidal n ended up in a psych ward because I had akathisia from withdrawals. Can’t remember what I was put on but when I was released was in the same predicament with severe akathisia n was suicidal again.

Back to the ward and was given different meds. Tapered off one and have been trying to taper off Seroquel since. It’s been many, many years of tapering so far.

I’ve  tapered from 300mg of Seroquel to 7.5mg./ March 10 2019=7.25mg / 17th of April=7 mg / June 5th=6.75mg/ July 14th=6.50mg/ August 28=6.25mg/ 10th of Oct= 6.20mg/ October 21=6mg/ December 16=5.80mg/.   January 21 2020=5.60mg/April 2=5.40g/ May 29=5.20mg/ August 14= 5mg/ September 29=4.80mg/ Jan 31, 2021=4.60 mg/ April 24=4.40mg

 

I AM NOT A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL. These are my own views based on what I’ve experienced myself.

The 1.1mg Prozac means 1.1mL Prozac, correct?

 

Over the last 7 days, has the severity of symptoms stayed the same, increased, or decreased?

Hi Alto,on the Prozac thread it says "if your fluoxetine liquid contains  20mg in 5ml of liquid ":

 1ml=4mg  0.5ml=2mg  0.25ml=1mg 0.2ml=0.8mg.

I never went further than 1.25ml=5mg.

when we agreed to go to 4.5mg ,I just went down to the next notch on the syringe .

so by my thinking its around the reduction we agreed 

 

ye some have decreased and some have upped .I'm noticing more positives to be happy about.i am noticing a dark depression that comes and goes as well ,im keeping an eye on it .I noticed the last few days simple things like washing up after cooking and cleaning isn't the big deal it was ,I get straight into it .

Ive looked for a 0.5  syringe but cant find one ,I better get a few online .

Thanks Alto.

Sounds like reduced Prozac might have been a good change. Let's observe for another 4 days or so.

 

Please be sure to make it 1.1mL Prozac in your notes, rather than mg -- we can get confused.

Yes, exactly, everybody has different liquid concentrations. Displaying the dosage in milligrams of active ingredient (MGAI) means more to the staff.

Do you get these symptoms in waves? Do they happen at any particular time of day?

 

You might reduce to 1mL or 4mg Prozac. Please continue to track your symptom pattern daily.

I get them mostly constantly .my system is so sensitized I believe the 1.1ml dose is having the affect of at least 2ml dose .

I believe you went to 1.1mL Prozac February 8? Please note in your signature.

 

A change in Prozac dose takes a week or so to fully register. It's looking to me like some stabilizing is occurring, in waves and windows what do you think, PB?

 

Seems that the Prozac makes you feel fatigued. What do you think of gradually moving it toward the evening?
