44 years old going through a separation and eventually a divorce and not really a depressed person but I do have anxiety issues and have had anxiety issues since I was a teenager. My doctor prescribed me 100 mg a day. I've looked at prescribing information on this site as well as other sites and I noticed most people are starting out on 25 mg per day for the first week and increasing from there. I've heard the horror stories all my life about antidepresants and never ever thought I'd be on them and actually I am afraid to start on such a high dose and wondering is that normal or if anyone else has been started out on such a high dose? I do go through periods of sadness or depression but in general, I am a happy person with a good attitude. Thanks in advance for any helpful insight!
