    Prozac is a SSRI. Unfortunately SSRIs are well-known for bad withdrawal symptoms and the longer you take them, the more likely it is to get such symptoms. How long you have them depends also on the durability of the medicamentous therapy.

    My experience: I was on Zoloft for over a year and then I took Cipralex for a half year. My withdrawal symptoms began after one week and they ended two weeks later.
