About Fluoxetine
Fluoxetine comes as the brand names Prozac®, Prozac Weekly™, and Sarafem®. Fluoxetine comes as a capsule, tablet, delayed-release capsule, and a liquid form. Your doctor may begin your treatment with fluoxetine at a low dose and gradually increase your fluoxetine dosage over time. Keep in mind that it may take a month or longer for you to notice that fluoxetine is working. Make sure you take fluoxetine exactly as your doctor tells you to. Do not stop taking fluoxetine without your doctor's approval.

If you miss a dose of fluoxetine, take it as soon as you remember, unless it's almost time for your next dose of fluoxetine. In that case, take your regular dose of fluoxetine and skip the dose of fluoxetine you missed.
