Steve, you are describing the biggest benefit
of Prozac (this also cuts down on the
serotonin discontinuation syndrome).
The downside is that when you
want it out of your system--it can take many

> Thanks Tobey for the info. One thing though. Many doctors seem to condemn Prozac's long half-life. I was on Prozac for 4 1/2 years 9and will be going back on it) as well as other meds. To me the long half-life is a benifit because there is a more steady level of medication. For example, I am on Celexa right now, and I can feel the up's and downs of the medication, espcially if I miss a dose or two. On the other hand, when I was on Prozac I never felt this rapid cycling. I compare it in theory to Klonopin. I have been taking small amounts of Klonopin for years. Before that I took Xanax or Ativan. The problem being with those meds is that with their short half lifes you can feel (dramaticly) when they begin to leave the system. Klonopin, on the other hand, provides a less severe, gradual decrease of its metabolities and thus and more comfortable "let down". In short, I think the long half-lifes are beificial, not a handicapp. What do you think?
