Zoloft to Prozac

Hi...Changing meds from Zoloft to Prozac.  Been on Zoloft 100 mg for 8 months and gained 40 lbs. Ouch!  Med Doc wants me to switch and says cut back to 50 mg Zoloft for 1 week then start 20 mg Prozac.  Psych Dock also wants me to switch and says take 50 mg Zoloft and 10 mg Prozac at same time for 2 weeks then go to 20 mg Prozac.  So which way?  I am being treated for anxiety and this cross info is scaring me.  Can I mix Prozac and Zoloft???  I don't want to be dead like Anna Nicole's son....

I would talk to your psych doc and tell him what your regular doctor told you and see what he says at that point. After that, I would personally go with whatever he says since he may understand the drugs more than your regular doctor does.

I would listen to your psych doc. They know more about that field then your regular doctor. If you are really worried then call your psych doc and ask them. I am pretty sure you can take them together because you have to have the weaning process from the other drug and be able to start the other.
