A 28-year-old female asked:

Prozac (fluoxetine) withdrawal: Hi monica, it's difficult to know for sure but Prozac (fluoxetine) is the ssri with the longest half life, meaning it stays in your system far longer than most antidepressants. I'd give it 6 months from the time you stopped and speak with your doctor if the symptoms persist after that. Best wishes.

Sedative dependence: Hi sue, what you are doing is correct. Take it as infrequently as possible and you are less likely to become tolerant to the effects. It will also be easier to stop altogether when the time comes. Best wishes.

Stopping Effexor (venlafaxine): Hi jodi, i'm sorry that you're not feeling well. Your question is difficult to answer without more information such as why the Effexor (venlafaxine) was stopped? Why was it prescribed originally and how long you were on it, and at what dose? What other medications has your doctor tried and what other medications are prescribed currently? If you are more volatile after discontinuing a medication, call your md.
