The highest you can take is 300 mg. I was on 150 mg but I didn't like all the weight I gained. I hope you are doing fine. Good luck.

Hi plowdenslager! The maximum dose for moderately depressed patients is 225mg/day; the dose for severely depressed patients is 375mg/day.
Since you're taking a low dose of 75mg an increase to 100 or 150mg/day would be reasonable.
Good luck and let us know what you choose to do and how it goes, okay?

PS, 300mg/daily was very effective for me with no side effects.
