> Docs in the know are skeptical when someone says they tried everything and nothing works. They say nearly 100% of depressions can be cured and that the primary cause of failure is too low a dose and too little time. For example, pdocs who have learned know that some people need between 100mg - 200mg Prozac. And three months is needed, not the usually touted 6 weeks. But for you and me, the problem with that is finding a drug we can tolerate at such high doses.

James here.....

I agree. No one has tried everything. With multi drug treatment the possibilities are exponential.
The correct dose is very docs tell me what the max dose is and what dose to start on
and leave it to me to find the right dose. If I think it would benifit to go above the max, I get a phone consult b4 going higher.

> What dose of SAMe are you on? You can go up to 1600mg a day ya know. Also, some of the European clinical studies on St Johnswort involved doses of 1800mg and 2700mg. That's two and three times higher than we take here in USA. Needless to say, those studies had the best results.

James here....

Just don't take the 2 together.
