Really the only thing that we can say for sure when we have a client calls in that is currently taking Fluoxetine is that, their prescription will likely have an effect on their life insurance application.

Now what type of effect…

  • How long have you been taking your prescribed Fluoxetine?
  • Who prescribed your Fluoxetine? Your primary care physician or a psychiatrist?
  • How often do you see your primary care physician who is treating you for this condition?
  • Have you ever been hospitalized for the condition you are treating?
  • Are you currently working now?
