Increase in prozac dose
« on: January 26, 2014, 10:57:02 AM »
I was on 20 mg of prozac for 7 weeks with no luck and the doctor upped it to 40 mg a week and a half ago and I still haven't noticed any changes. I'm starting to fear that the med will not work for me and I am desperate for it to work. I will give it more time but just feeling low I guess

It usually takes 3-12 weeks for antidepressants to kick-in so it is still too early to tell if Prozac is the right med for you. Increasing the dose won't speed this up by much.

NOTE: I'm not a doctor, and particularly not yours, so there may be factors I'm unaware of. Therefore all suggestions are general in nature and you should consult your doctor before following any of it, especially before changing med doses.
