Thanks for posting your query.
Your symptoms are not likely to be related to stopping prostap injections. Fluoxetine is likely to cause such psychiatric side effects like- transient psychosis, development of obsessive-compulsive symptoms, paranoid reaction, delusions, agitation, etc.
You can wait for2-3 weeks if the symptoms are not very bothersome for you. These can subside spontaneously.
Otherwise you can consult your treating physician to change fluoxetine with another suitable alternative.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
