  • Switching from Sertraline to Fluoxetine???

    I was on 50mg of Sertraline, I have gone ‘cold turkey’ without any withdrawal symptoms.  My GP did not specify how long after stopping the Sertraline, I should start the Fluoxetine. Has anyone any previous experience with switching, how long should I wait? (I’m 22, if that matters)
