I recently tapered off of Prozac (properly) and about a week after my last tablet i had symptoms of withdrawal. The symptoms were pretty draining and very consistent. That went on for about 3 weeks and then in the last few days or so i was feeling better than i had been but not fully better. But even though i was feeling better than i had been for the most part, i would still have moments in the day or night where the symptoms would get really bad again and now today and last night the symptoms have been really bad again like they were at first. This is disheartening for me as i thought i was on the road to recovery but now i feel like im stuck. Could this just be part of the process? I was on Prozac for around 6-7 years prior to this. I'm 21 years old too.

    When you say tapered properly, low % such as 3-5% every 2-4 weeks or until stable? 6-7 year's and good chance it will take some time. Slow is key. Also Cognitive behavioral therapy or learning some tools, meditation breathing, suppliments, magnesium etc. Prozac should be illegal and psychiatrists are to quick to prescribe what I consider a poison numbing the Brain. You'll get there. Look up Ann Blake-Tracy and her information on SSRI's.
