Prozac Withdrawal

The web site you are on is The Road Back Program. The Road Back is a member of California Association of Alcoholism & Drug Abuse Counselors (CAADAC).  We have been assisting people off psychoactive medication since 1999, and have helped well over 50,000 people off their drugs.

The web site you are on now, The Road Back, offers information on how to get off Prozac, prevent Prozac withdrawal side effects as well as eliminating current Prozac side effects.

You will find on this site the complete book, How to Get Off Psychoactive Drugs Safely. Click How to Start on the top navigation menu to access all chapters. Since 1999, over 50,000 people have now used this information to get off their antidepressant or other type of psychoactive medication.

Withdrawal off of Prozac does not have to be difficult and handling current Prozac side effects can be resolved quickly.

Note: If you are taking Prozac as well as an anti-anxiety medication (benzodiazepine), the anti-anxiety medication must be discontinued first. If you are only discontinuing the Prozac the Prozac must be reduced very slowly to prevent withdrawal side effects from the anti-anxiety drug. Prozac slows the metabolism rate of anti-anxiety drugs and when the Prozac is removed from the system the anti-anxiety medication will not take as long to metabolize and this creates a withdrawal effect from the anti-anxiety medication. See chapter 9 on the right side of each page for anti-anxiety medication procedures.

In May 2013, our program made its next leap forward and at this time; completely eliminating Prozac side effects is not only within our grasp, it is here.

Anxiety in the daytime, insomnia at night, the dreaded head symptoms common with Prozac withdrawal can now be a thing of the past.

There is quite a bit of information on our web site and if the ill effects from Prozac have you unable to read very much text, we can make this very quick and simple.

For head symptoms, even the brain zaps, taking the right type of omega 3 fish oil will eliminate them quickly. Take (1) Omega 3 Supreme TG in the morning and (1) more at noon. .

If you have nausea, drink a couple cups of ginger tea each day.

If you have insomnia, take a supplement called Body Calm Supreme With Melatonin or Body Calm Supreme Melatonin Free. The one with melatonin is stronger. (You would take 1 teaspoon 15-minutes before bedtime)

If you have daytime anxiety, take Body Calm Daytime Relief. (Take 1 or 2 capsules every 2 to 4 hours during the daytime)

All of the Relax supplements are in a veggie capsule and the capsules are guaranteed to dissolve within 15-minutes after swallowing.

A supplement called JNK Capsules was formulated to help reduce the over activation of a gene called JNK. The over activation of the JNK gene is the cause of antidepressant induced weight gain, diabetes and a host of Prozac side effects.

These supplements are manufactured and sold by Neuro Genetic Solutions. If you are in the United States or Canada the supplements are 50% off at the moment.

10% of the people wanting to get off Prozac do not make it because of the withdrawal side effects. Of the 90% that are able to get off Prozac, 50% will still suffer during the Prozac withdrawal. There is no need to suffer.
