Stay with it! : I'm sorry to hear of ur depressive exacerbation, despite prozac (fluoxetine) tx. It's great that ur working with ur doc to get started on a hier dose regimen. If you've observed no change, call ur doc! She may ask u to come in, or increase prozac until sxs r controlled. Ur current dosage is relatively lo. there r many effective meds & therapies. u & ur doc will find the right one for you!
