Well, you won't be able to switch without your doctor writing a fresh prescription, and you need to discuss this with him/her. There shouldn't ba a problem with switchign as the two drugs are members of the same family. But the question your doc will need to answer with you is whether its wise to change from Cipramil unless it clearly isn't working for you after several weeks at the right dose. You may also want to consider whether you would be served as well by generic versions of either drug ( chemically identical, but significantly cheaper ) such as Cilift for Cipramil, and various generics for Prozac. The money saved could be significant
