I've been to psychiatrists whose automatic response when a particular med was not working well was to up the med. If 400 mgs of serzone isn't working, how about 600? I've "maxed out" on several different meds. Usually, at higher doses, I feel worse, not better. Meds can be a literal life-saver (they were for me) but they can also have side effects and can lose effectiveness after a time. I try not to forget the many other things I can do for myself beyond meds - exercise, good sleep, a sugar-free, alcohol-free diet, good relationships, meditation. These things are effective. It's easy to ride the "just up the meds" bandwagon. There are depressed people who successfully recover from depression without meds. I know some. It takes a lot of work and lifestyle changes. And, of course, there are some people who cannot recover from depression without meds.
