Not likely: Nothing is impossible w/ side effects for psychotropics, but not likely. However, you might be ready to try to taper off Prozac (fluoxetine). I hate the idea of forever for a drug like that. If you've not done some therapy, you might want to try a bit to feel secure as you get off the meds. Best!
