Re: highest FDA approved dose?
It is probably 300mg a day, but I know that many doctors (especially when treating OCD) are willing to go over the max approved dose.
 
In fact, I have a psychiatrist who is very conservative, and he let me go over the max approved dose of resperidone.
 
Just talk it over with your doc.

According to the PI sheet it’s 300 mg.  Is it showing signs of pooping out?  (I am concerned about poop-out as this med seems to be working for me so far.)

I don’t know if it is done for Luvox or not, but doctors aer known to prescribe higher than the FDA approved dose for other meds sometimes.

I am quite sure that 300mg is the highest approved dosage, as when I used it my doctor said if we reach 300mg we cant go any higher because he couldnt. I am really positive that 300mg is the highest.
