Xanax - How much to take when starting SSRI?

Posted by BobS, on April 19, 2004, at 20:06:35

I have a horrible anxiety reaction when starting SSRIs. I have been off SSRIs for several years, but now the depression is back due to a number of large life stressors. My pdoc is not afraid of the benzo gestapo and says I can go to 6 mg in a pinch. Anyone take more 6 mg for the short period 2 to 4 weeks during the SSRI start up period?

I read in the Noonday Demon book on depression that the author took up to 18 mgs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
