Re: Can You Become Immune to Your Antidepressant?
Most definitely. Your liver will eventually become tolerant to the drug, and you'll need more of it to get the desired results, much like illegal drugs. If you're on a relatively low dose, you might want to ask for an increase in dosage. On the other hand, if you're taking a pretty high dose, you might want to just change meds. However, if you have any co-existing anxiety disorders with depression, you'll most likey need a high dosage for the symptoms to subside. I don't have depression, but I do have OCD, and my therapist and GP just increased my Zoloft to 250 mg for my CBT...
