I was just wondering what dosage everyone is on? I started off on 37.5mg and felt great, but my Doctor insisted on upping it after a month to 75mg. Not sure if this is pretty standard?
Thank you :)

Hi, HC! 75mg is the common starting dose but doctors often start you on a lower dose to help you adjust to the medication without side effects. An increase to 75mg in your case is completely standard procedure and further increases, if needed, up to 225mg or more are completely safe.
Who knows ~ perhaps you'll feel even greater!

HC90; yes your doctor is doing it right start low and slowly increase it to help you adjust to the medication with the least amout of side effects. and most do good on 150mg to 225mg MYSELF I HAVE BEEN as high as 300mg and now down to 150mg every morning and doing well on that. Have a good day. Chuck1957
