Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. Although effect of prunes on Prozac, Neurontin, and Buspar had not studied but in my opinion it will reduce absorption, as most of the laxative affect absorption of medicines. It will be better if you take Prozac, Neurontin, and Buspar 2 hour before the prunes use. I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups. Wish you good health. Regards, http://bit.ly/Dr-Ashish-Mittal
