Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi
Thanks for using healthcare magic

Prodep contains fluoxetine and its elimination half life is 36 hours. In that case, if you stop it immediately, you would not get any withdrawal symptoms. If you get any withdrawal symptoms in form of anxiety, you can take clonazepam on sos basis. Rest, you can discuss with your psychiatrist. In case, you need my help, you can ask.

Thanks
