Hi All

Have not posted for a while been on cita since Dec 10 mg upto 20 mg since Feb anxiety is better feeling calmer with times when feel back to old self, but still having thoughts (checking in) on and off in day which I feel is keeping the anxiety going. I do try and let them just be there having done plenty of reading on thoughts. Wondered if anyone else been here and if an increase in dose would help the thoughts or just give what I am doing more time although 4 months now on 20 mg and 6 in total
