There are various factors that will influence your withdrawal period from Prozac. Got to hang in there. Hi Shannon, I know this was a long time ago but I'm experiencing the same exact side effects!
You gave her a great idea, write everything on a sheet of paper and take it to the doc appointment. Already have an account? Talk to your clinician about the benefits and risks of antidepressants in your particular situation, and work with her or him in deciding whether and when to stop using them.

She told me prozacs half life, the time it takes prozac to excrete half of the dose, is days. Although two people may experience the same or similar symptoms, one person may have a more difficult time coping with them. The headaches are always there. I used to be very well off with my orgasms but now I have been unable to get healthily aroused with my husband. Hi to all, I have found this blog to be very interesting and gives me comfort that I am not alone in this… To make a long story short I have been on some sort of an antidepressant since Since the drug is metabolized in the liver by cytochrome P isoenzymes, genetic variants associated with expression of these enzymes can affect metabolism, metabolite concentrations, and elimination half-life.

Factors that influence Prozac withdrawal:
There's always a doc on call for you. You may be tempted to stop taking antidepressants as soon as your symptoms ease, but depression can return if you quit too soon.
I feel very trapped in an unhealthy living situation. Please let me know when your side effects begin subsiding! I can say that you will eventually recover to your pre-medicated state of functioning over time… but it will likely take a significant chunk of time, and the original depression may come back.
Don't try to quit while you're under stress or undergoing a significant change in your life, such as a new job or an illness. I would take 40 to 60 mg a day, depending on how I felt. I will be glad when this transition is over… meanwhile, no kissing… which could lead to sex… LOL.
The stuff made little difference: A person who is addicted craves the drug and often needs increasingly higher doses. So I called the surgeon and he told me to go ahead and take it.
