Fluoxetine question

Hi...I have been on fluoxetine for almost 2 years now (20mg daily) and want to stop. My doctor has told me to reduce the dose to 1 every other day for a while but I can't help but worry about any bad side effects of coming off them.

Has anybody come off fluoxetine before and what was your experience? Did you have a 'crash'? and how long did you take a reduced dose for?

Thanks in advance smile
