Been taking 10mg Prozac for a week now and hate

Patient: Been taking 10mg Prozac for a week now and hate how I feel. How to I ween myself off it?

 

 

Doctor: Hi.Thanks for your query.Since you have started Prozac just a week ago, you can certainly stop it. Of course you have to ask your doctor before you stop.I hope there will not be any problems. There may not be a necessity to wean off.You are also taking Zanax.Carry on, nothing to worry.
