Just wondering, does anyone know how long it would take for Prozac to be completely "out of your system" once you stop taking it? I was taking 20 mg per day for about 6 months. I stopped taking it 2 months ago (with my doctor's permission, of course). I read that Prozac has a long half life as opposed to, say, Paxil, which would pass through quicker I suppose.

I took prozac for over 20 years at 1oomgs a day.  That is the highest dose you could take.  I had a drug level done approximately a month after discontinuing and there was a trace detected.  I am sure at only 20mgs a day for six months that the levels would be close to zero after several weeks.
Prozac was the greatest anti-d for me, I miss the way i felt when i took it, they discontinued it because of my tolerance.
