Not sure prozac is working
« on: February 09, 2014, 10:01:35 AM »
Hello, been on prozac for 10 weeks now. 7 week at 20mg and 3 weeks on 40mg. I think I should be able to tell by now if it is working for me but I can't. Can it take longer than 10 weeks to feel something or should I think about switching to another med. I'm getting a little frustrated and was really hoping for some relief.

I think you need to discuss this with the prescribing physician. I would have expected some indication it was working by now even if it wasn't doing so 100%.

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

When I started prozac, it took just over 12 o3 13 weeks to kick in for me.

But it did kick in and has been working ever since.  Of course, if your body doesn't respond to prozac,
your doc may suggest others.
