I have suffered from major depression since adolescence, and have recently taken action by seeing a new psychiatrist. However, I'm worried that for whatever reason, he's not prescribing an effectively sized dose to treat me.

He started me at 75mg IR, and when I asked why that seemed so low, he said to take it for a few days and see how I tolerate it. Did that. Then I asked to be bumped up, and he said to go no higher than 150mg. However, as I understand it, 150 is the STARTING dose for someone with MINOR depression.

Am I crazy here (besides the obvious)? I'm also wondering, of people who take more than once a day, at what times you take yours.
