I stopped a 20mg a day dose of prozac overnight at the beginning of April and I'm still feeling terrible. Lots of physical symptoms - headaches, brain fog, drowsiness being the main ones. I had to stop suddenly as it was making me feel terrible being on it. I had been on it for 2 years and 3 months. Is this withdrawal pattern normal? I had hoped to be feeling ok by now. I'm meant to be doing a PhD but can barely function.

    Stopped in April too im just starting to feel semi normal again still got mild dp/dr. Everyones different might take you longer than others. Try to stay positive and take it day by day I promise you get better.
