In brief: High dose prozac (fluoxetine)
That dose may not be safe.
I have never had a patient on 90 mgs per day. There are a lot of other strategies a board certified psychiatrist would generally have and be able to apply in the case of someone needing ultra high doses of medications.

In brief: Maybe not
Though that would be a high daily dose, there is a weekly form of Prozac (fluoxetine) that is 90 mgs.
If it is a daily dose, perhaps a med change is worth considering.
