My girlfriend is on fluoxetine for depression, anixety/panic attacks & also self harms from time too time, and now she has decided to come off her medication even though she has been on it for a few years, I don't think it's her decision to decide, it should be her doctor. I don't know what I can do? Also if she did decide to come off it what are the side effects?

The best thing you can do is convince her to see her Dr. about it, but in the end its really her choice...0

It would be bad. I take drugs in that class and you have to stair step down off of them. If she's still harming her meds need adjusting and if you catch her harming then you need to call 911 and have them pick her up to be evaluated. If you don't you're an enabler. Psychiatrists make pacts with their patients that the patient promises to seek help if they feel like harming themselves or someone else0
