Take as directed...: With limited information here, appears decreasing Prozac (fluoxetine) and continuing on valium poses little risk. Reminder to start and stop medications as directed by prescribing physician, but in general, decreasing and stopping Prozac (fluoxetine) or ssri type medications is reasonably safe from a seizure risk concern.
