So I have been on Prozac (Fluoxetine) for years, due to anxiety and depression. I've always been on 20 milograms. Lately, I have been experiencing a lot of anxiety, even on the prozac. Has this happened to anyone else? Do I maybe need to go up in my dosage? I don't understand why I'm getting like this, when it's always been fine before. I don't see my doc until January.

  • I cant imagine going for years on the same dosage. I would say its either time to raise it or switch to something else. You may have become immune to it but I think I would see about having it raised first.
