LM77: girl friend tapering Prozac

Recommended Posts


I am so lost my girlfriend has so much Rage. She is tapering off of prozac and its horrible. She has pushed me away. Her text today were so irrational like waiting for me to say something so she could attack. I love her so much and was going to marry her. She is so distant and will hardly speak to me. Will she ever come back to normal?

Hi LM and welcome to SA,


I'm sorry to hear that you have been affected by your girlfriend's tapering of Prozac.  We have other members here who have experienced or are experiencing something similar.  I suggest you check out the topics that others have posted in this area of the forum:




It would be really good for your girlfriend to join SA so that she can be supported by other members who understand what she is going through and to get information about how to taper in a way that keeps withdrawal symptoms to a minimum.
