Prozac most likely will not make him feel "doped" up. But, I must admit, 20mg is a whopper of a dose to start with for someone not familiar with it, even though it is a common starting dose. Just one dose at 20mg could scare him away from ever taking drugs again. Prozac is on the stimulating side, especially when it is first started. Some people even get incredible anxiety and panic attacks from it as they get started and their bodies adjust.

Here's a neat trick though. Empty a capsule into a glass of orange juice, stir it up real good, and ask him to just take a sip, any size sip he wants. That's a good start. Put the oj mix in the fridge, stir up real good the next day and have him take another sip. It might take a few weeks, but eventually he'll get to drink more and more and finally be at a good dose. 10mg might even be just fine. It will stay good and potent for at least a week in the fridge.

I was on prozac for 5 years and felt calm, yet energetic, and cognitively sharp. It could be good for him. Use the oj trick to break the ice. I would strongly advise not going for a whole 20mg dose to start with.
