Hey guys,

Currently been on 10mg for 3 months, I feel it's just not quite enough,I was advised to go up to 20mg but do I do it gradually or take straight away ? smile

    I just went straight from 10mg to 20mg and I did get some side effects (still have them now 4 days later, increased anxiety, bit of funny vision, sweating) but it's manageable and I know it will pass soon. Otherwise you could go 10, 20, 10, 20, 10, 20 for a week so its like 15mg a day (what my doctor also recommended). But it's not too big of a jump  smile

      Yes I thinking going to go straight onto 20mg.

      I'm off work for a week so probably the right time ifvi get the side effects back again.

      Have you noticed any improvement?

      Mines mainly over thinking and anxiety, my brain is so overactivesmile

    Hi Lee, how did you feel for the first few weeks when you started taking these?  if you felt really bad then you could up them to 15mg until you settle then go to 20mg, or if you coped ok then go straight to 20mg.
