75 mgs at 7 days out? I'm not a psychiatrist, but from personal experience, that is a VERY quick titration. I think recommended starting dose (both anecdotally and from manufacturer), is 12.5 and/or 25 mgs. More than anything, this is vital to avoid getting "the rash." Slow titration is considered extremely important. My pdoc said 50 mgs at the end of month one is a good place to be.

I found 25 mgs to be a bit much for me for the first week and I backed down to 12.5 mgs.

Again, my hunch is that your dose is way (WAY) too high for week 1.
