Though discontinuing an antidepressant does involve a type of withdrawal, this doesn't mean that you're addicted to the antidepressant.
For this reason, you're unlikely to have extreme withdrawal symptoms with Prozac.
The biggest difference between the two is that discontinuation symptoms typically begin within a few days after stopping your antidepressant whereas a relapse normally takes longer to occur and the symptoms develop more gradually.
Another difference is that discontinuation syndrome often involves physical symptoms that aren't associated with depression or anxiety, such as dizziness, nausea, or flu-like symptoms.
Antidepressants don't cause these long-term brain changes nor do they lead to cravings or addiction.
Symptoms of antidepressant discontinuation syndrome tend to be mild, usually start within two to four days, and last just a week or two.
