Scott. The last 5 days of discontinuation, along with 37.5 mg FXR, I took 20mg Prozac everyday for 5 days. You probably don't need to do it that long, but at the time, I was considering switching back to Prozac. I thought I could ease my FXR withdrawal & at the same time start my Prozac trial. I felt so well though I decided to go med free to see what would happen. I guess YES would be the short answer. Lol

I was fully prepared to stay at a dosage longer than two weeks or even go back up if I felt bad but fortunately I never really did. After two weeks at 75mg. I then dropped to 37.5 mg/day. On the fifth day at this dose I began 20 mg Prozac. (Some say 10 mg is effective, but I just happened to have some 20mg left over from previous use) After 5 days I stopped the FXR XR & the Prozac. I should probably mention I was taking 800mgX4/day of Neurontin & Klonopin prn along with the FXR XR. I stopped the Nuerontin about a week after the FXR. I was med-free (except for occassional Klonopin) for 13 wks!! My pdoc approved of all this though it was basically my idea. I am now on Wellbutrin 150mgx2/day, 400mgx4/day Neurontin & Klonopin prn. The Wellb is about to put me through the roof. Sorry probably more info than you wanted. Hope this helps. Take care
