Hi I suffer serious physical effects of anciety, particularly stomach trouble. I've been on Prozac 20 mg per day for bout 29 yrs now. I'm 41 and started them at 20!! I'm suffering g bad at the mo and doc said increase dose to 49 mg per day? Does anyone out there know whether the extra one per day is likely to make much difference? I don't know if I should start it or not.

    Everyone reacts differently to medication

    I think fluxetine is a easy drug to manage if the higher dose does not make any difference just go back to you normal dose but it wil take around 6 weeks to kick in.

    Personally I think you need a different anti D  29 years is a long time to be on one drug
