I took Prozac (fluoxetine) for nearly 2.5 years. Have been weaned off by psychiatrist & just stopped yesterday. How long before it leaves my system completely?

In brief: 20-30 days

The half-life is 4-6 days with chronic use.
We multiply that by 5 to get the elimination half-life which would then be 20-30 days. There are metabolizes that can hang around longer.
