Re: XR: What Dosage Passes Serotonin Impact? SandyWeb

In reply to XR: What Dosage Passes Serotonin Impact?, posted by SandyWeb on March 3, 2007, at 9:54:44

Hi -
For me, 225mg/day is best during most of the year and though sleep disturbances really suck initially, they seem to lessen after 4-8 weeks. Of course, that's 4-8 weeks after building up to that dosage with sleep disturbances throughout. I moderated those best with plenty of walking (my dog loved it) phasing out caffeine and alcohol and as much exposure to the sun as I could get. My body mass is twice yours so 150mg may be about right.

Suicide ideation is an ongoing struggle for me, even when I'm at my ideal dosage - so I began looking for other coping methods and if medication alone doesn't seem to help you, I encourage the same. Talk to your therapist about Cognitive Behavior therapy and meditation. If you want to know more and would like details about therapists who have studied (and are continuing to study) that approach, please respond. I'll repost the info in a different thread and attempt to link to it from here.

Best of luck,

Hagbard
