So I started taking Prozac 10mg at night. For about 7 days I had horrible insomnia but it has lessened a lot...
I had called my pcp regarding this and he says to take in the am so it won't affect my sleep as much.
My question...does it really matter? I'm sleeping better and don't know how I'll feel taking it the am..
If it feels better taking it at night, then take the Prozac (Flouoxtine) at night. Just make it a habit to take the medication at certain time at night. Some posters have discussed forgetting to take their medication at night, especially on weekends, due to family visits, or going to an evening movie and forgetting to take the med after the movie. One forum member made a very good suggestion to put your iphone/android on vibrate at say 8:00, so you know to take the medication at 800 wherever you are.
Taking it AM or PM doesn't matter, due to Prozac's long half life. You'll always have Prozac in your system from the previous dosage; however, if your body falls asleep easier with night time usage, then you should take the medication at night.
In a previous post,you mentioned having surplus Trazedone given from your doctor in a previous proscription. You should take the Trazedone with the night time Prozac (Fluoxetine), however I think think you should contact your doctor about the recommended dosage. You stated you could take 20mg of Trazedone, which I think is safe, but again, get it past with your doctor by phone. Most doctors answer within 24 hours if you make it a urgent matter, and I think switching medications is an urgent matter, because these medications have a strong reaction with our brains and body. A simple call beforehand could prevent a psychological outburst later.
