I think some doctors are 'pushy' with getting people bumped up on doses, they will skyrocket the dose on people. Like years ago, I was asking my psychiatrist abobut Lyrica, i told him i heard about it, he immidnatly said no, nuerontin, and he wrote a scrpt for 800mg X 3 daily, i didnt start it at the dose, but i had half the tablets, then move up to 800mg tablet.

Right now i take 600mg of nuerontin, my doctor said its the maximum. She is not in favor moving any higher. But the previous doctor was pushy, and wrote the script for 800mg, it was a rehab that was very expensive, they had only a few patients. We did therapy, talk with therapist, then see the psychiatrist. It was in a office type building where their offices were located.

Prozac I have to have it at maximum - 80mg because my depression is not responsive to 40, or 60. We went through years of trying wellbutrin, then finally giving the ok to bump it to 80. Prozac is the longest SSRI, to take effect, it takes i think about solid, 6-7 weeks to feel its antidepressant effect. Maybe some at 4 weeks. I think, in my case i have to have higher doses of meds, because i'm resistant in someway to meds, they have to bumped up.

Other people ths doenst really apply, because someone can start prozac at 20mg, and be fine without having to move to 40.

It's mainly about pushy doctors, they like doing extreme changes
