I'm trying to have my 3rd and final baby and am on 40mh of Prozac.. I have dropped to 20mg last week. Any tips ?? My doc told me I can just stop taking them because they are self tapering ??

Prozac has a long half life so it gradually decreases (self tapers) in your body when you sop taking it. I've never had any problems just stopping it.

Also my GP has told me it's one of the safest antidepressants to take in pregnancy and whilst he would prefer me to be medication free has agreed to put me back on it as I wasn't coping. (Currently trying for baby number 1)

I have this weird feeling like I'm going to fall over when I walk. I stopped it three months ago.
