Maximum dose of cymbalta???

Does anyone know what the maximum dose of cymbalta is. I am on 120mg and the more I take the better my depression is--of course I know I shouldn't overmedicated but now that I can function again, I am wondering if more might not even be better for me. Thanks.

not really sure of max dose .. i was told by one psych that it wasnt even theraputic until 120mg but they raised mine and it made no difference.. I am taking it more for pain control for my fibro.. I also take doxepin and it seemed to help more for the depression. I would call and ask the dr before raising it any higher!

Re: Maximum dose of cymbalta???

I think I remember my doctor telling me once that the maximum dose of Cymbalta was 90mg. 120mg sounds like a lot - I would at least get another opinion about that dose...
That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

I also thought it was 60, but there is always a diffeence between the recommended and the safe dosage- if it's helping.
