Sounds like he wants the noradrenergic and dopaminergic effects to kick in, which'll only happen with a high dose. It's basically just an SSRI at low doses.

However, in ramping the dose so quickly there's a danger you'll be overwhemed by side effects and will quit before you get any benefit, so it seems an odd way of doing things!

> I just started taking Effexor XR three weeks ago and I'm already on the maximum dose for the med, 300mg. My doc said I would be able to find out faster if its going to work by going to a high dose quickly. But my question is this: Is it true that sometimes lower doses work better for people than the highest dose? If so than why didn't he give the lower doses a chance to work and just go right to the maximum dose? Thanks.
