I am glad you got to discuss your concerns however you wrote:
"she did point out that prozac has been on the market for 40 years."
Prozac has been on the market since 1988, not 40 years, only 19 years.
I agree with the plan to try an increase your dose and if no results, I would look at one of the newer meds, Lexapro, or Cymbalta. Of course I am not a professional so that will be your decision.
