      I really think u should start low and work up. Everyone instead said they start out at 20 and have issues.

    I'm currently withdrawing from Fluoxetine. Tried for three months, had to take two months off work as it made me so I'll. Doesn't suit everyone, I think I'm a bad case, others have said its a wonder drug.

    im now looking into natural therapies. Have found Turmeric (I know this sounds like I'm an airhead) but google it. It's been proven to be more effective at treating depression than Prozac! Wth?  It also has other proven properties to do with inflammation, heart disease, cancer....

    im also trying evening primrose oil. 

    Anything but prozac for me.

    good luck with it, I hope you don't suffer the same as I did.
