In brief: 250mg/day
Maximum recommended daily dose is 250mg, but some psychiatrist may push a bit further. If at 250mg/day and symptoms not controlled, pushing higher dose is not likely to benefit.
Adding other medication, change of meds, or combining with cognitive/behavioral therapy probably is a better way to go then pushing too much of one drug--just my humble opinion. Consult your doc. Best of luck to you.
