Dose for your: medication is printed on the label on your prescription bottle. Please follow that and don't change the dose w/out seeing your doc. Please consider seeing a mental health profession for therapy as well. That combo gives the best results. Peace and good health.

See ans: Call your doctor's office to find out who is covering doc. Ask that person what to do or call pharmacist where you got Prozac (fluoxetine) prescription filled. Ask what were the directions. Also, directions should be on the Prozac (fluoxetine) container you got from pharmacy. I hope this helps.
