I have been holding off writing this blog, so I had a clear idea of what the tail end of Prozac looked like for me, and I am glad I did because it hasn't all been plain sailing. I took Prozac for a total of 6 months, and It has been 6 months now since I came off it. Here are my thoughts about this roller coaster of a journey. Before I start to explain my experience, I first want to say that Prozac served me very well in a dark time. I was in a terrible state of mental health, and I needed some help to move through that stage. Prozac definitely came through with the goods, and it helped me manage both my moods and feelings. Prozac took away the mind chatter, completely as it turns out, it reduced my anxiety and feelings of hopelessness, and it gave me a chance to breathe.
