    What would you like to know Ms. NurseWendy?
    Have you checked out Dr. Michael Anchors website?
    There are a few of us on the site who have direct up close and personal experience with it.

    As I understand it, teh advantage is taht the phen and ssri combo delays the tiem when phen quits working it's magic with a person. I have had VERY good success with it.

    Unfortunately Ms. Butterfly just fingers that won't do what I want the last few days. Washed 'em and can't do a thing with 'em.

    It's my understanding that the prozac (or any ssri) doesn't make the phen work faster, it makes it work longer. Phen will normally poop out in 3 months or so .. it stops working. The idea behind phen pro is that the pro (prozac or another ssri) enables a person to be on phen longer without a break, Dr. Anchor's site (google phen pro .. his site will bubble to the top) would be a great source of details. If you're the sort who is open to supplements, CLA is a popular one with phensters.

    I take both but I started the prozac before the phen so I cant really say as I am only about 6 weeks in. I dont know about this one I am on the fence. It makes me wonder how an ssri does with a person who isnt in need of the ssri. and of course there is that seritonin thing...BB whats it called again? so I think if it works then yay for all of us doing it but I was a little scared at first

    I'm on my 2nd month of phen. I was prescribed phen and pro and took it for 3 weeks. I believe I suffered from seritonin syndrome, the side effects were horrible. Migraines, tight chest pain, feeling like I couldn't swallow, rapid heartbeat and aggitation. I lost 15 lbs on that combo. The 4th week I just starting taking the phen Alone. All the horrible side effects from whatvi believe was caused with the pro were gone. But I haven't been able to lose any more weight, its discouraging. I wish the phen pro didn't make me feel like I wanted to kill myself, because the weightloss was amazing. I haven't managed to gain anything in phen alone, it does its job with curbing my appetite.

    AndreaMegan your doctor suggested that you take them seperately? At what times? And how do you feel.. I'm interested to know because maybe it could work for me. I was told to take phen in the morning and prozac at night before bed... I don't know. I'm willing to try anything, I'm stuck!

    I think I just wrote on your other post. My doc told me to never take them together because it can make the serotonin levels TOO high, so I do mine around 11 am, and then I do the effexor before bed, around 10 pm. I guess it gives the serotonin levels time to go down before they go back up from the effexor, in your case, prozac. I never had good times with prozac fyi..I was on it for anxiety and PPD after my second baby and it was TERRIBLE..made me worse. So maybe the prozac isnt for you. People lose just as good with just phen. But i mean its your choice to take the prozac and phen togther, but if you DONT NEED the prozac for anxiety/depression, then idk if id take it, imo
