I have been on ad's for 13 years.Started on prozac several years ago because of cost. I've tried getting off of it several times only to return because of depression coming back. The only thing that bothers me is i experience blackouts if i drink more than 3 drinks at a time. when off of it for 6 months, this didn't happen at all.
