Hang in there - there is no point in being depressed if you don't have to. You are lucky the Prozac has worked for you, and, you are on a pretty low dose, from my experience.

I stopped my Prozac after a course of 7 months, and 4 months later I was more depressed than ever. When I finally broke down and called the doctor (it was worse the second time...) the nurse said to me - "look if you had a headache, you'd take and asprin, right?" I still remember that, and for the past 4 years I haven't ditched my meds, though I'd like to sometimes!

Best wishes...
