Unfortunately I had the same question on the 12th my doctor switch my dose from 50mg to 100mg 33 days later. I asked my Doc. and he simply replied, because we believe that they need to get me where they believe it is going to do what its supposed to do.
I myself personally do not like 100 milligrams it is making me feel jittery so I took myself back down to 50 milligrams and when I go see him this month I will be letting him know as I'm sure they will be switching it out. It's all according to how you are reacting with the medication.
I'm not a doctor, I just have been switched and up as well as lowered with every any depression I have ever been prescribed.
Like Paxil, zoloft, trazodone, etc. They seem to always up the dose.
a3a3a3; All good answers And most medications have a starting dose which is low, This helps the doctor put us on the correct dose we require Because we are all different and don't need as much as some people.So like amitriptyline comes in about 6 strengths and you would not want the strongest to start with if you only need 10mg or 50mg the higher the dose alot of times the more side effects so better being safe than sorry.They are working with medication and adjusting it to your needs.Be patient you well get there and it is worth it when you finally get the right dose and medication. Have a good day Chuck1957
