I did a year of Prozac about 15 years ago, lowest dose also, in conjunction with another (which I can never remember the name of) for sleep that I took at one tenth of the recommended dose. Had no problems while on them, they did exactly what I needed them to do, and had no trouble getting off of them. My depression started with the surprise death of a favorite uncle. It came at a time when I was particularly stressed (I had just had my second baby, was dealing with the colon cancer diagnosis, the IBD diagnosis and its symptoms, and building a house). The death was the final straw. The meds helped me to recover mentally as I was recovering physically.
Sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
