Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query.

Prozac contains fluoxetine and it is a antidepressant like sertraline. It is from the same group SSRIs like sertraline and would help to control withdrawal symptoms of it. There is no need to take adderall as it is a stimulant and would increase anxiety symptoms. You can try st. Johns wort. There is nothing harm in using it. It is a herb product and would help to decrease anxiety symptoms.

In case, you have more query, you can ask.
