jafco Posted July 16, 2005 Share Posted July 16, 2005 I'm discontinuing EFXR permanently. Possibly all AD's for the time being. When I get down to 37.5 can I open and modify the caps to a lower dose? I've done this before successfully with Cymbalta, but I think this is a completely different animal. I am aware of the availability of low doses of Prozac 10 Mg cap, and even the liquid form,(unfortunately 20 MG is the only strength made in the liquid to my knowledge. I might consider an MAOI in the near future. In any case there is a 2 week washout period required before making the switch. It's a big decision, and I simply haven't made it yet. I've been through them all (except the MAOIs) and nothing has worked. My pdoc is now reevaluating my Dx, from simple uniploar depression w/ comorbid anxiety to possible BP II or BP III. I've had several hypomanic episodes he feels were a result of the meds... I'm not sure what's going to happen at this point. It seems there are a lot of undiagnosed BPs out there because they come to the pdoc presenting depression symptoms, and many times overlook manic episodes, especially if they are few and far between.
