well, they are sort of addicting, but not addicting
you become dependent on them unless you taper off properly
how long should someone be on them?
you can be on them indefinately, depending on if you need them
but not all antidepressants work the same
and the prozac can cause the symptoms you were having
the best thing is to taper them off slowly otherwise you will have withdrawal
If you are having symptoms after 3 months of taking them, it is something else
How do I taper off them?
you cut down the amount by about 5% every week.
for a very slow taper
but you can cut down by 5mg every 2 weeks
Should I have been informed about the potential side effects?
You should always be informed about side effects of any medication
I was not made aware of them otherwise I would not have used them
You can file a complaint against your physician and pharmacist if you want to
But it may be better to taper off of them and get your life back in order
Is there a governing body that I could discuss my situation/concerns?
let me get that info for you
