I have been taking prozac for 3 years and want to stop. My doctor initially started my dosage at 20 mg, then upped the dosage to 80 (3 pills) I felt too hyper and experienced burning when urinating, so i went back to 20 mg. I have depression as well as panic attacks. I am also taking ativan 2mg and think this helps more than the prozac. I am 48 years old and am perimenopausal, taking premarin as well. I feel too medicated and want to stop the prozac. When I tried to sptop last fall, my body felt as if i had a mad itch that wouldn't go away. When i resumed the prozac, the itching went away. Please help me. My husband is out of work and we have no health insurance. Paying out of pocket for prozac is hard on us and this is another factor in why I want to stop. I want to be myself....not in a fog all the time. I seem to feel numb to the point that I am not really feeling all in life I am supposed to. How do I stop safely? How do I stop the ativan? I sweat every night....is this related to the drugs? I am also trembly and shaky at times. Even with the drugs, I still feel sad and depressed, with bouts of crying. I grind my teeth constantly and now have been diagnosed with TMJ......a result I feel is from the prozac. Please help me and offer any and all advice possible. Your help is greatly appreciated.
