Been taking 10mg Prozac for a week now and hate

Patient

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

Doctor

A:   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.

Patient: I just quit taking it. Still had some of the side effects the last 2 days, but feel better. Glad I didn't have to ween myself off it.
