> How long have you been on 60 mg? I would stay on the 60 mg for at least a month or two - that may be an effective dose for you. Why the hurry to jump up to 75 mg?

I would imagine that it happens, and it probably wouldn't be very hard to get a "replacement" prescription to bump you up to the 75 mg that you desire. But, what if the psychiatrist you see won't prescribe higher than 60 mg? Are you going to pretend to lose your medication every month so that you can get more?

Hi Merge,

Thanks for the response. The reason I want to jump up to 75 mg so quickly is because I want to go back to work at the end of September and I need it to kick in by then. Also, the reason I am taking it is for severe Social Anxiety Disorder and I have read that a higher dose is needed for Nardil to treat this rather than depression.

I am actually feeling mildly uplifted in mood already and have only been taking it for 11 days, but still no major effects for the social anxiety symptoms.

The worse thing is that I have been taking 60mg all this time and my doctor is telling me that here in the UK she is not allowed to prescribe anything more than 45mg, so I will have to drop down if I can't work something out. I am still taking 60mg despite this and will run out early so I am hoping that she will prescribe me more anyway. Any ideas how I can continue to get this dosage?
