Prozac book and dosage question

Posted by sabre on October 20, 2004, at 5:59:20

I'm just reading a book written just over a decade ago, called 'Listening to Prozac' by Peter Kramar.

I was curious about a comment he makes on p.339 that different patients react to different doses. He said for those prone to anxiety, 20mg may be too high a starting dose. Patients with panic-anxiety are started on eighth of the therapeutic dose!

After experiencing unpleasant results due to taking drugs such as Serzone, Paxil, Lexapro and Moclobemide and trying to get to the min. therapeutic dose (as directed) I wonder whether it would have been preferable to try an even smaller starting dose as he suggests. The book makes it sound like a miracle drug.

Has anyone had any success with Prozac for social anxiety/panic? What dosages worked for you?
