Thanks for your query. Prodep is fluoxetine
, a SSRI antidepressant as well as anti-anxiety agent. The effects of the drug require 6-8 weeks to show onset of action and the drugs needs to be continued atleast for 6 months-1 year after you depression
has resolved completely. It would require gradual tapering and the drug cannot be abruptly stopped for fear of withdrawal symptoms
. CBT/cognitive behavioural therapy, a psychotherapy
technique is an alternative modality. Wish you good health.
