Meme,
i dpends on your dosage, and on what effect you expect. Nuzak ( a Prozac quivalent Fluoxetine ) treats Depression, and isn't a tranquillizer. The usual dosaeg is 20 mg a day, sometimes raised to 40, and not to go over 80 which would itself rarely be an adviseable dose, an NEVER without the specific advice of your prescribing doctor. For further help with the stress, talk it out, with friends, co-workers, family.
