      Olivia, I too have upped my dose from 20 to 30 a few days ago. I was on 10 for about three months and my doctor said it wasn’t enough. So he increased my dosage from ten to twenty for a week and then up to thirty a few days ago. Best decision as I am feeling fantastic now. Best in a very long time. I am so impressed with this medication.
