Thread: Making 10mg out of 20mg (Fluoxetine)

    Making 10mg out of 20mg (Fluoxetine)

    Hello!

    Day 5 and it's been pretty rough so far.

    Day 1 and 2 I took 20mg and found I was up all night and felt like I was on class A's at certain times ! The info on this forum has helped alot so thanks to all that document thier first few weeks.

    Anyway 20mg was too much so i asked to be put on something lower. Turns out my Doc doesn't have anything lower (UK) so I've had to resort to breaking capsule apart and taking some out. It's all rough guess but I guess if anything i'm leaving 10-15 in capsule.

    Silly question time!

    It's based on weight right ? Or is it based on strength ?

    I was thinking of taking half capsules for a week and then trying 20mg again.

    Presumably i don't want to be taking 10mg for too long as it will take double time to kick in ?

    Thank you.

    Just one question, what time of the day do you take it? As it gives you a bit of a lift it's recommended they be taken in the morning, initially anyway.

    Been taking them in the morning

    I only took a little out this morning and as a result i'm on full blown 'lift' right now and battling panic. I am well prepared when it come's to facing panic attacks but I gotta say, this one is tough !

    hi dave
    It can take 4 to 5 weeks for the prozac to settle the side effects should start to fade after the first 2 weeks. Keep an eye on how they are making you react it might be worth having a word with your GP it things get worse as not all drugs suit everyone.

    Dave, I got the liquid version from my Gp last week to allow me to take 10mg - a 2.5ml spoonful. Tastes vile, mind.

    Jane are you from the UK ?

    *Just noticed the flag on your profile.

    Does anyone know the answer to wether it'\s 20mg of weight or 20mg of strength.

    I have been tripping out for the last few hours and have finally started to calm. It's all good though.
