Why?: If you are not happy with prozac, (fluoxetine) talk to your doctor. If you are not happy with your doctor, get another doctor. I don't understand why you bought st. John's wort before you know what to do with it? The issue here is not whether combining Prozac (fluoxetine) with st. John's wort is good idea for you. The even more important problem is how to repair your relationship with your doctor.
