How would a pharmaceutical rep know better than your doctor what dosage to take and what changes you should make to your medicine? Don't listen to him! Seeking the experience of a plethora of people on Psycho Babble who have actually been on the medicine is INVALUABLE compared to a pharmaceutical representative's statistical proof. This guy has never even taken Lexapro, and no one should listen to him if he says to alter dosages. And, if I were Dr. Bob, I'd allow him to post with the EXPLICIT restraint of medication recommendations. He can "sell," or give "proof" or tell us "we shouldn't be experiencing that," but never should he say, you should up your dosage. Pharm reps know very little compared to doctors and patients.
