> Target dose is different for everone. I personally felt great at 50 Mg! Others need much more...As fallfalls said the slow titration is because of the rash which can be very serious! so you have to watch out for it! otherwise you could bump it way faster..if it works for you this med is great..but only time and unfortunately patience will tell....good luck

mags,

How long did you take to get up to the 50 mg? And if you don't mind my asking what other medications are you taking it with?

I'm just feeling so funky and since this is the only med being tweaked in my cocktail currently I feel like every brain fart and space out are somehow connected to this med. Nutty I know. No rash or other obvious se's.

By the time I see my pdoc next week I will have been at the 25 mg for eleven days (working up from fourteen days at 12.5 mg). I'm not sure just what this doc's idea of target dose is anyway.

Guess that's where the 'we're all individual' part comes in, eh?

Thank you for the support. Time and patience are oh so hard to achieve when one doesn't have control over one's own thoughts. Sigh.

I'm hoping I'll be like you and feel fantastic when I get to 50 mg. Here's hoping!
