    Hello all, i'm back, ended up sectioned >.<

    Anyway, im on 40mg of prozac a day at the moment and its given to me by my mum so i cant get to it, but i had a chance today and took 20tablets (20mg in 1 tablet). im going to take the 40 i get in the morning, but then also take another 40, = 80 a day.

    how safe is this?

    :sad: Have you been sectioned since this or before?Im a little confused about what sectioned means?tell your mom right away if you took 20 tablets(not 20 mg?) today..You will feel really sick..probably nauseaus.You have to go to the hospital because it will damage your liver..and you will really regret having done that.You deserve to feel BETTER not worse.IT isn't safe..you will feel really awful...no fun! Tell her now.Sooner you do the sooner you can get some treatment.

    I don't think 80mg of Prozac is safe, it's not a dose doctors ever prescribe. It's far too high and will probably only make you feel sick, not better.

    So you took 20 tablets, and are only taking 80mg (4 tablets) at any given time? I have to agree 80mg is way too high.

    It's the same as trying to OD on Ibprofen. It's fucking hard, you'll have to eat bottle after bottle after bottle, and even then, you'll have a slow agonizing death (up to several weeks), caused by an eventual liver failure.

    i know, cause i've thought of just about every way i can to kill myself. I don't mind pain, but a slow death, is not something i can handle. I wouldn't do that either if i were you.

    80 mg of Prozac is NOT approved for use, and for a reason... It's way, way too high. 20 mg is the regular dose, right? Then think of it, FOUR times the regular dose? That is not healthy!
