depression and anxiety

Just to add to my other post which I sent thru last night I forgot to mention that I was told to take 2 capsules Nuzak(40mg) which seems like a lot so Im only taking 20mg to start. Is that okay

Hi Cheryl
I agree with you to start slow with a lower dose but you can take 40 mg a day, you just then have to take 20 in the morning and 20 at noon (not later otherwise it will keep you awake at night) Usually if the 20mg does not really cause side effects you can up the dose (Look here for side effects: http://www.drugs.com/sfx/fluoxetine-side-effects.html
Be careful not to use herbal preparations or supplements with Nuzak without consulting your doctor
