Go on-line and research the normal dosage for
The XL: it seems high. Were you given a generic
Or name brand?  That makes a big difference.
Generic is NOT the same. I have found it
Weaker and may be prescribed with a higher
Dosage. I did experience dizziness after switching
Back to name brand and had to reduce the dosage.
Good luck.

mine is generic,even with insurance i cant afford name brand..today im dropping back to 2 and try that,i hust feel like since i was on 150 mg sr twice a day that 2 of the xl might work...im on my 3rd day of no prozac..i read on line where the 450 mg is not unusual..i may need that much with out the prozac..i dont know i just want my sexx liofe back..the hormones and thyroid problem was finally found and i believe thats whats been going on all these years,not depresssion.
