I'm a notorious on/off taker of prozac. I experience a very similar response as you.
I've done it at least 10 times in the past 9 years, and everytime I feel better off the drug, lapse back into a depressive mood, restart and feel better for months.
I don't know why this happens either. Though I suspect a slight elevation in serotonin, or some other neurotransmitter might be all we need. As levels decline or rise we pass through the "ideal" concentration and experience relief. That, of course, is all conjecture.
