You probably will not feel the side effects unless you have missed many doses. Prozac has a long half life which means it stays in your system for a long time (unlike the other SSRIs such as Paxil, Lexapro, Zoloft..) even after having stopped taking the medication. As a result, withdrawl symptoms are minimal. However, you may begin to experience a return of depressive/anxiety symptoms as the drug level decreases. It is not a good idea to abruptly stop taking Prozac because you feel ready to get off of the medication. If you missed a few days because you forgot or left them at home while on vacation - it is unlikely that there will be consequences. If you want to stop altogether, talk to your doctor first. :)

Prozac to Lexapro?

I just saw my Dr. Today because I am switching from Lexapro to Prozac because of weight gain on Lexapro. This is coming from my Dr. You MUST NOT MIX LEXAPRO and PROZAC. They are not compatible chemically. You must allow at least 3 or more days for the one drug to "wash out" of your system before you start the new one. You may need more time than that. Confirm this with your Dr.

No, regardless of which brand or generic form of adderall you buy the dose is more or less exactly what it says on the package, e.g. no matter which brand you buy if it says on the package 20mg the dosage will be more or less exactly 20mg. No brand is more or less strong than any other with the same dosage.
