Yes, stable blood level is required.
This helps serotonin level to increase in the brain.
In fact, it is the brain serotonin level which is more important for stable mood.
is this why it take s the few weeks to work doc
the level gradually builds up known as steady state .
ok well im on lustral doc
and on a high dose
and i been doing pretty good at 300mg
ok that is good
and was on it 6 wks
yes that is about the time for the optimal effect
but unfortunatly i pushed myself to hard in work physically
the wk before
and i went all over the place
very down , fatigue , anxiety
ok --not uncommon
i waited 10 days of hell but it couldnt pull me out of it
so my doc put me up to 325
and on it 5 days and feel lot better
but will it take as long for it to level out agian
yes that is expected
higher dose is helpful.
that is good doc
and should i soon get more consistant energy and mood
as on the 300 i felt like doing stuff again but my energy level wasnt there to give it to me
yes gradually over time
and is that down to the adjustment reachjing a level balance in my brain again doc
i find im very sensitive to meds and external enviroment and i am very up and down with consistancy
the serotonin level in the brain takes some time to reach the equilibrium
ok doc so i should give it at least 4 wks on this dose to see if is the right amt ,, yes
probably this will work.
also doc how high can i go up on lustral , my pdoc said 400 is max.but yes hope this will work, i think it should
you still there doc
yes it should work.
yes upto 400 mg is the max.
