    Hey Lynne,

    Sorry to hear you're not doing well.

    I think it may be your dosage is too low. My Dr recommended at least 20mg. Have a discussion with your Dr to go up a dose. I've been on 20mg for many years and felt well enough to try 10mg but after a month I got quite I'll again. Once I went back up to the 20mg I'm starting to feel on an even keel again.

    Hopefully you can find a good balance

    Best wishes.

    10 mg seems very low to try and help the body out and, as mentioned above, 20mg may well be the ideal dose.

    I've been on 30mg since just before Christmas, having been on 20mg since September up until my dosage increase.

    Admittedly, I've felt better on 20mg more than I do currently on 30mg for some reason.

    Suppose everyone is different and each dose/medication need requirements depends on the individual?
