My reaction too-that seems like high dosing. I felt some benefit by even 25 mg of Anafranil. 75mg was plenty effect-wise for me. I took it up 25mg at a time--but I had little side effects so that worked fine.

Each pdoc has strengths and weakensses--I learn my pdocs' and try to counterbalance. Your pdoc sounds sympathetic, a good diagnostician--most important!! but may be a bit liberal regarding med dosages. So you may want to check with your own research about the meds and dosing periodically.

I have the same situation with my current pdoc. Need to check whether I really need to take as much of a med as he prescribes, and I sometimes suggest a less aggressive med schedule. I think he prescribed 300mg of Luvox from the getgo for me...currently I only take 50mg, 1/6th of his suggestion!

Good luck.
