Tpaggio: 6 weeks off the AD and I’m not sure…

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I’m so damn mad I’ve made it so far cold turkey off Prozac I mean pretty much my Dr said just take your regular 40mg and take 20mg for one week then you should be fine!! My body hurts so bad right now and is so tight and tense and the sad part is I’m not depressed or feeling bad mentally it’s the physical stuff I don’t know if I can handle much longer!

Hi, @Tpaggio Welcome to Surviving Antidepressants.


How long have you been off Prozac? What other psychiatric drugs are you currently taking? 


Depending on long you've been off Prozac, you may want to reinstate. Here is information on reinstating and information on tapering Prozac.
