question about medication?

Should I start my AD(ssri) slowly again, i.e. half dose for the first several days, and then up to normal dose? I've been off it for two months after being on it for four months. I realized tonight that I can't beat this anxiety and irritability alone, I'm going nuts! Maybe I should just start on full dose. Has anyone done this after taking a break?

Re: question about medication?

First off I would do whatever your doctor tells you. The way I see it is it depends on your body and how it reacts to meds. If your med sensitive then go the half pill route if not then go the full dose. I have never started with half the dose of any med I have ever taken with no difficulty but my system handles meds well.

take care
