No. : Prozac (fluoxetine) has a long half life and you can take once weekly doses. (planned). Lilly makes a weekly dose for stable patients. I hope that this wasn't intentional self-harm. I would suggest holding your next scheduled dose and discuss with md. If you think you need a higher dose, discuss first!

Fluoxetine: I would not be concerned unless you have any side effects, which is very unlikely.

Prozac (fluoxetine): Nausea and headaches possible, otherwise no harm done. Let your doctor know.
