Prozac can take 30 days to leave the body so often withdrawals are not felt for 3-4 weeks and many mistake the symptoms as depression. Our NonProfit has been helping people withdraw safely for 15 Years.

Prozac history and info
Prozac targets Serotonin, the neurotransmitter found primarily in the gastrointestinal tract, blood platelets and central nervous system, and is thought to contribute to feelings of happiness.
Prozac has the longest half-life of any antidepressant, meaning it stays in the body for an extended period of time. Many patients do not realize they are in withdrawal as the symptoms may appear weeks after stopping the drug. A gradual taper is recommended yet many still find the symptoms too challenging and need assistance.
Prozac (Fluoxetine) failed in clinical trials as an antihypertensive medication and again as an obesity drug. While it did not show improvement for patients hospitalized as psychotic and actually made some patients worse, Prozac found its home as an antidepressant after it improved the mood of five mildly depressed volunteers. It was then launched as an antidepressant in 1988 and was responsible for more than one-quarter of Eli Lilly Pharmaceutical's income. The marketing strategy of providing a cure for an illness was born by Interbrand, the world's leading branding company (Microsoft, Nikon, Nintendo, Sony) and the name Prozac was chosen because it was short and had a positive and professional sound. Lilly printed 8 million brochures highlighting the symptoms of depression with a treatment option and patients began asking for the drug by name. It was the success of Prozac that created the market with similar antidepressants called SSRIs (Selective Serotonin-Reuptake Inhibitors).
Now Prozac is being marketed to our dogs under the trade name Reconcile to curb the anxiety from being left alone for long periods of time. The studies used to obtain approval for the drug stated that 30% of animals were found to have 'phobias' or 'fears', while 12% were found to have 'separation-related problems' when parted with their owner.
Eli Lilly, the U.S. manufacture, said: 'Treatment for companion animals is a relatively new area for us.' The UK recently approved Prozac for use in pets. Side effects of Reconcile include lethargy, reduced appetite, vomiting,
shaking, diarrhea, restlessness, excessive barking, aggression and seizures.
