If a patient is suffering from a severe depression causing a lot of lack of energy, not exercising a lot, leading to a feeling of spaciness and
just a rotten mood, a little vertigo
, perhaps, is it safe enough to up the dose of lexapro
to 60 mg/day for a while?
I traditionally have not responded to antidepressants until the dose was in the higher-than-average range. For instance, I have taken 150 mg Elavil, 90 mg Parnate, 400 mg Serzone, etc.
