> My wife is having intense false labor cramps. The doctors found nothing , she wonders if it might be prozac withdrawal. Has anyone heard of that?

Saul - I hope you don't mind me asking you a few questions, to get a feel for your situation.

1) Did the doctor call these cramps Braxton-Hicks contractions?

2) Approximately how far along is she (in weeks) into the pregnancy?

3) Is this your wife's first pregnancy?

4) How old is she? (a range will do)

5) How long ago did she stop taking the Prozac?

6) How long had she been taking the Prozac before stopping it?

7) For what condition was she taking it?

8) Why did she stop taking it?

9) How is she feeling mentally? (other than scared and worried = my wife and I have been there, twice)

10) With regard to her condition; have the symptoms come back or are they still in remission?

I hope that this isn't asking too much, but I will be able to give a more detailed answer with more info. Sorry that it looks like a pop quiz.

BTW - I have probably never seen true withdrawl symptoms after someone stops Prozac. The half-life of the drug is too long. Actually, Prozac is used to treat serotonin withdrawl when antidepressants like Effexor™ (venlafaxine), Luvox™ (fluvoxamine) and sometimes Paxil™ (paroxetine) and Zoloft™ (sertraline).

Hope this alleviates some stress and hope to hear from you soon. - Cam
