hi! From the studies I've read, it seems like the big problem is getting the dose high enough. With the SSRIs, usually you hit a plateua of efficacy--you can raise the dose some more, get a few more responders (and more dropouts from side effects), but not major change--with mocobemide, it seems like the dose **has** to be ramped up a good bit to get a significant response...I read one doc's opinion of it, where he recommended at least 900mgs/day, possibly moving up to 1200. That said..it does seem like there are more failures with it than with other meds.
