> I went through 3 "rounds" with Prozac in my 30s. I stayed on it for about a year each time -- one thing is, I never had any withdrawal symptoms at all once the year was over! I felt ok, my severe depression was gone. The only drawback to Prozac I see (besides the cost if you are not on a prescription plan, I got mine for nothing or next to nothing), is the sexual side effects -- it did make me have a low sex drive and took much longer to have an orgasm. (I'm embarassed to post that stuff, but ANYTHING to help a fellow Four!)
I am still a moody person but nothing like that terrible clinical depression -- now my problem has been anxiety and for that I AM on an addictive drug (Xanax) that will require careful withdrawal. But again I repeat I had no withdrawal symptoms with Prozac.
