I quit Prozac (fluoxetine) after 10yrs. Suicidal ideation, depression, and insomnia decreased post-prozac but anxiety increased. How can I treat anxiety now?

In brief: Other treatements

There are two different approaches to treating anxiety, even after 10 years.
Psychotherapy is a very effective option. Sticking with medication, there are other medications besides Prozac that treat anxiety and depression. A different ssri, such as zoloft (sertraline) or Celexa is an option, as well as choosing a medication from a completely different class, such as remeron.
