Psychiatry 31 years experience
Possibly: In theory Prozac (fluoxetine) is a long acting medication that takes weeks to completely get out of the body so that would make one less likely to experience withdrawal compared to other medications in its class. That being said, anything can happen to anyone.

How does fluoxetine work to change the way I feel?

Dr. Maureen Nash
Geriatric Psychiatry 24 years experience
Through serotonin: Fluoxetine or Prozac (fluoxetine) is the first medication in the class known as selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitors. It increases the length of time serotonin stays in your brain. Serotonin is one of the neurotransmitters or chemical messangers in the brain that helps some people with depression, anxiety or eating disorders. It can be helpful in a few other illnesses also.
A 37-year-old member asked:

Is fluoxetine addictive?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Samuel Miles
Psychiatry 47 years experience
No: Fluoxetine is not addictive or habit forming. If one stops taking it too soon, symptoms of depression and anxiety may recur. This is not a drug effect -- it is the remnants of the underlying anxiety or depression that was covered by the drug effect.
