Over the last 10 years I’ve been on antidepressants. At different stages I was on Pristiq, Celexa, Cymbalta, Viibryd and Prozac. I was also on Lamictal and Klonopin.

I am proud to say that I am currently free of all prescription medications.

I took my last dose of Prozac 27 days ago. I’m surviving but I look forward to thriving. I could say so much and really want to share more but currently I just don’t have the energy or clarity. I will write again when able.

Welcome to SA, angielynn78ii.

 

That's great that you're drug-free.

 

When you're able to write, could you let us know how fast you tapered the Prozac?

 

Are you having withdrawal symptoms?

 

What is withdrawal syndrome.

 

We don't recommend a lot of supplements on SA, as many members report being sensitive to them due to our over-reactive nervous systems, but two supplements that we do recommend are magnesium and omega 3 (fish oil). Many people find these to be calming to the nervous system. 

 

Magnesium, nature's calcium channel blocker 

 

Omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) 

 

Add in one at a time and at a low dose in case you do experience problems.

 

This is your Introduction topic, where you can ask questions and connect with other members.  We're glad you found your way here.

Hi. Just sharing that I'm also coming off of Prozac recently. Discontinued in November 2019, took for one week in mid-feb 2020 out of desperation, been off since then. It's been hell but gets better. Hope you're doing okay.
