Hallo Curious
DONT stop cold turkey - it is not worth it! Stopping taking Fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem) or other SSRIs suddenly may cause discontinuation effects, or withdrawal symptoms, including:
dizziness,vertigo/light-headedness,nausea,fatigue
headache,insomnia,abdominal cramps, chills, increased dreaming, agitatio and anxiety.
Fluoxetine won't affect glucovance and hot humid weather has no effect on sugar level readings

1) I AM TAKING FLUOXITINT FOR DEPRESSION BUT WANT TO STOP AS I FEEL THAT IM BETER NOW
2) I AM DIABETIC AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT THE EFFECTS OF THE TABLETS ARE TAKEN TOGETHER
3) MY SUGAR LEVELS HAVE BEEN VERY HIGH IN THE PAST TWO WEEKS AND I THINK ITS THE HOT WEATHER
