For example, pdocs who have learned know that some people need between 100mg - 200mg Prozac. And three months is needed, not the usually touted 6 weeks. But for you and me, the problem with that is finding a drug we can tolerate at such high doses.

James here....

You have to look at context. People who are on this high a dose were partial resonders to lower doses and have few side effects, so a higher dose
made sence.

With Effexor i have gone up to 400 mgs but have found no real mood/ect benefit above 300 mgs. the sweating was a little problem at 400 mgs but I live in an adobe house that stays 74-76 constant all summer with no AC. 300 mgs made more sence from the cost/benifit/side effect view.
