I'm on day 19 of my increase from 25mg to 30mg . Finally slept through night. I actually got pretty good sleep. Also helpful that I haven't stayed up past midnight in these last 2.5 weeks.My new bedtime is 10:30ish which is pretty cool. My internal alarm is waking me up at 6:00 am daily now, which is partially annoying on the weekends.
My morning anxiety is what gets me the most right now. I wake up and my stomach is in knots. Which usually sends me to the restroom. It's not as bad as it was on day 1 but it's still there. I noticed on Saturday and Sunday when I woke up with nothing to do I immediately began to lay there and think about anxiety, and how I was going to feel the rest of the day. This really throws me off at times.
The racing thoughts on how I feel are probably the hardest thing for me to overcome right now. I don't feel as detached from the world as I was on Day 1. My students (I'm a teacher) also haven't been questioning if I was okay. It was really hard for me to talk.
What's really weird is at the end of the day I feel dang near normal. I'm not sure why. It was even weird last night I was excited to wake up for work this morning (which is day 20) When I woke up I of course had this dreaded morning anxiety. I guess the one question I have for anyone who ask is, will this morning anxiety ever pass? In all honesty I know the answer to this because I've been through this before.
I would love to hear some success stories if you have them?
