I think when I started My pdoc had me take 15 mg for a few days then upped it to 30mg for another week or so. I'm the one that usually makes him slow the advancement of a med increase. The times I ramped up quickly were never successful and usually failed to help me at all.

My approach is always slow, only increasing after a week or two, and if no side effects or improvement in mood moving forward.

I'm now at 45 mg, backed down from 60 mg.

I did have side effects for the first 6 months which were unpleasant, but were not enough to make me quit. I think has worked for me since with other meds that my pdoc has pushed I usually had much worse side effects which made me quit the med entirely. Perhaps some of the meds would have worked if he were only less aggressive in raising the dose.

After 20 years, he now lets me proceed at my own rate, which is usually snails pace. It suits me.
