Prozac Issues

Hello all! I'm new to Cafe Mom and to this group. My 1st post :) Suffered from depression for 8- 9 years. I've been on Prozac (40mg) entire time and Wellbutrin (300mg) XL for most of the time. I also take adderall XR as well. Sometimes, my prozac script will run out and I'll forget to take it for several days. ( I travel ALOT- so not always close to my pharmacy) When this happens, I get into a huge funk. Very depressed, crying uncontrollably, hopeless, etc. Has anyone who takes prozac had this happen? I talk to my MD about it and he seems to think it's ok.  I know it takes a while for it to get in and out of your system, but this is in a matter of a week.  Any insight?

I had the same problem on Prozac, but I also turned out to be Bipolar, type 2. That type gets mostly depression, but it's not "normal" depression. I was also on 40 mg.
