hi..

i was wondering whether anyone knows when it's a good time to increase dosages?

i mean the i take it for OCD, and i understand you should give 3 months, but i were to test every dosage for 3 months (100,150,200) i would need a year! just to see if it works.

Hi Adder

The best thing for you to do is discuss this with your doctor, as each person is different and reacts differently to meds.

Hi adder,

You don't mention what medication or dosage you are on. You would expect to get an effective response in the first 6-8 weeks and if you need an increase on the dosage this is the time for your Doctor to check it effectiveness. Some Doctors will increase the dose after the first month it the response is poor and every month after that.

When you do increase the dosage it should become effective within 4 weeks and you would certainly notice the changes in how well you are feeling.

If your medication is nor being effective go and see you Doctor and he will adjust the doseage.

Best Wishes
