Fluoxetine and Withdrawal

Fluoxetine, brand name Prozac, is prescribed for a variety of mental conditions, which include: depression, panic disorder, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and bulimia. If you are discontinuing use of Fluoxetine it is recommended that this process be supervised by a medical healthcare professional that can provide Fluoxetine withdrawal help. The cornerstone of a smooth antidepressant withdrawal is a slow reduction of the dosage. This allows the body time to adapt to the removal of antidepressant drug. Under medical supervision, if you do experience withdrawal side effects, such as insomnia, lethargy, headache, confusion, anxiety, or irritability, your medical provider may adjust the dosage as needed.  Do you want to quit taking Fluoxetine?

What is Fluoxetine Withdrawal?

Prozac ( fluoxetine ) withdrawal symptoms are generally similar to those of other SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), unpleasant, bothersome, and hard to endure alone. Therefore, individuals taking this antidepressant should always consult a prescription medication rehabilitation center or doctor before attempting to get off their medication. Fluoxetine side effects of withdrawal typically fall into three categories of effects, behavioral, physical, and mental. While antidepressant withdrawal itself is difficult, there are other challenges, such as residual withdrawal effects that can last several weeks, months, sometimes years, and a reoccurrence of the condition which the antidepressant was prescribed to control. However, having the right support can help anyone to overcome these challenges. Our rehab center uses careful Fluoxetine tapering methods, cognitive behavioral therapy and 24/7 care, and searches for what the causes of the original mental health symptoms were.  Don’t let Fluoxetine affect your life.

What can happen during Fluoxetine Withdrawal?

There may be noticeable changes in a person’s behaviors when they are stopping Fluoxetine. Emotional lability often occurs. This is when an individual in antidepressant withdrawal exhibits more intense emotional reactions than appropriate to certain situations. For example, hysterically sobbing over a commercial on television or laughing uncontrollably because of a situation which isn’t particularly funny can occur when an individual is suffering emotional labality. A mildly manic state called hypomania marked by talkativeness, energy, restlessness and productivity, can also occur. The Prozac withdrawal symptoms mentioned above are some of the most common behavioral effects reported. People in this situation usually require professional Fluoxetine withdrawal treatment to get through this process safely, comfortably and soundly.  You can end your struggle with depression and Fluoxetine withdrawal right now.
