>But in the UK the max recommended dose is 30mg and not the 60mg it is in the states so a clinician who prescribes a load more does so on his own responsibility.
There isn't a maximum dose in the UK as such. The official data sheet just says 'doses above 30 mg daily under close supervision only' or something like that. I think you might be able to encourage your doc to let you try 60mg, since this is the maximum recommended dose in the US.
