    Hey Lynne! I have been on 10 mg down from 20 mg last two weeks.

    The 20 mg was sedating and i felt terrible for 3 and half months.

    I havent been feeling that great either still.

    I get the intrusive thoughts and anxiety and low mood.

    What type of thoughts do you get?

    Are you able to go out and do things outside?

    It took me 7 months to finally feel pretty much better. I was on 10mg and they increased because I was not better at 1 month to 20mg. And boy do I regret that! I stuck with that dose for 6 months and felt awful, I had all of the symptoms that you listed and more! I finally decided to go down to 15 and I guess that was the right dose for me, I finally feel better. So, if you decide to increase try to go up slowly, try 15mg for a month or so and see how you feel before jumping up to 20mg. They do work, just takes the right dose, and the right amount of time to work.

    Best Wishes!
