Thank you all for posting. I have been off Prozac for 3 weeks now and I am expericing a symptom I cannot describe. Its like a "zinging" or rush every 10 minutes or so. A sudden alertness to my balance and vision. I saw on other internet sites this described as "meteor strikes" and "electrical shocks". I thought I had some other illness and this has been rather depressing in itself. I am on other meds for diabetes but have been on the same dosage for over 8 years. I cannot think of any other reason for these weird symptoms. I am going to try excercise... I have a theory. These sensations are exactly the same as I got when I was on muscle relaxors. As sudden "zinging" and alertness as my body was fighting being lulled to relax. The way I burned the muscle relaxors out of my system was steady excercise. I will let you all know how my experiment works out. Good luck all...
