Hi everyone.
   Ive not posted in a while but have been reading at lot of the posts.
Anyway........I have been on prozac for a number of years now and Im due to see my doc in the next week or so,for a medication review. What I want to know is ...has anyone come off prozac and been fine?....I really want to be med free and I have been having a pretty good run recently.But I'm a bit scared about coming off them....i did do about a year ago and was ok for a few months but then had to go back on them. hope this makes sense!....thanks, jayne xx :-)

you should make a big effort to learn new relaxation methods and CBT skills before quitting, then if the old anxiety problems return, you will be much more able to deal with them


the best way to recover is with both meds and CBT

many just taks meds, sadly
