Can you get 5mg fluoxetine in the uk? I need to start taking anti-depressants but I'm too afraid of taking them after a bad experience. Anybody else had this problem?

Thanks!

You can always cut 10mg tablets in half.

I'm not kidding here - I've done it. Do it carefully, otherwise the halves fly off all over the place.

I also had fluoextine in liquid/medicine form once and i'm sure that's still available.

For medical reasons I couldn't go straight to the standard dose of 20mg, so had to measure it out in a syringe/pipette type thing.

Ahhh yeah, thought of splitting the tablet in half before, but always got capsules. I had resorted to emptying the powder out on a piece of paper and cutting it into 2 amounts like a drug dealer lol! Thanks for your suggestions there though folks.
