In the late 90's I tried Zoloft and Paxil..lasted on both of them about a week..I was woking as an agency pharmacy tech around 2000-2001... dose for Zoloft was 100mg... now 50 or 25mg..Paxil..20 mg a day now comes in doses of 10mg and 12.5 mg er..Prozac..20mg comes in a 10mg cap
I have studied this as a layman and appaently they found out depression with anxiety requies lower doses..I feel big pharma was kind of arrogant with there initial doses and of course physicians accepted this My point is I feel many people just need there neurotransmitters tweeked... not sledgehammaed
