Fluoxetine not recommended during pregnancy
The summary of product characteristics for Prozac (fluoxetine; Eli Lilly) now states that fluoxetine should not be used during pregnancy unless the clinical condition of the woman requires treatment with fluoxetine and justifies the potential risk to the foetus. However, abrupt discontinuation of therapy should be avoided during pregnancy.
