prozac stopped working

I was on prozac for 5 yrs it stopped working.  I am taking celexa and wellbutrin, not the same.  I know prozac works again after a break, I just need a ballpark idea of how long I have to be off prozac to go back on and have it work?

I asked my pdoc this and she said usually it takes several weeks of being
off of a med and then reintroducing it before it works again.  Best wishes,
