Actually there is an obvious trigger, although I cannot be for certain via email. Any antidepressant, including Prozac, can destabilize mood. This can happen even in the face of deriving some benefit from the antidepressant. My recommendation is to discuss this promptly with your psychiatrist, and seriously consider tapering off the Prozac. At the very least, you will learn whether the Prozac is a contributing factor.
