Kelda: In that book, Dr. Murray says the minimum effective dose is 300 mg (divided amongst your meals, 20 minutes prior to) .... but you need to ramp up to that. I am currently holding strong at 400 mg (200 mg x2 -- I only eat twice a day). But in the beginning, to get some solid footing underneath me, I had ramped up to as much as 600 mg and stayed there for a couple of months. Dr. Murray says the maximum is 900 mg per day. I got a PM from someone saying, "This isn't working." She was only taking 100 mg a day.
P.S. for the OP:
Julia Ross has been a guest on Underground Wellness (very popular podcast) two times now and will be again either next week or the week after. You can find both those previous shows on iTunes. Only one of the shows is available for streaming on the UW site; the other one isn't archived that far back.
I've heard good things about "Depression Free Naturally," but haven't read the book. I've found what works for me, so I'm not inclined to fiddle with anything.
