Does anyone have experience of coming off fluoxetine? I've been on 20mg per day for a year now after post-natal depression and am feeling well enough to give it a go...

Will go and see doc to discuss, but anyone been through it? What should I expect?

Hi. I had a really positive experience coming off fluoxetine. I was only on 10mg for 3 months so it may take you longer, but my gp prescribed me a liquid dose and I dropped down slowly. I did 5mg for a week, 2.5mg for another week then every other day, every 2nd day and so on.

I had absolutely no side effects whatsoever and feel fine now. I did rush it a bit as I wanted to ttc but it worked well for me.

good luck, I hope it is as easy for you.

thanks Kezza, that's good to know - going to leave it until nights a bit lighter, should be easier then.
