    hiya Nix yeah I was in a similair position a few months back, after 7-8 weeks of the 20mg dose I suddenly hit a brick wall as in stopping feeling so good and dark thoughts appearing so my doctor upped my dose to 40mg per day and although it took another few weeks to happen eventually I felt amazing compared to the beginning, so yes I would say go for a higher dose Nix, it wont work immediatelly but it will eventually let you live your life again, good luck smile

    Hi Nix

    This is normal.  Your mood will be up and down as you recover and you'll feel as if the depression has come back again.  Just let the feeling be there, but know they'll lift again and start enjoying life again.  This process can happen many times but each bad time it'll get less and less until you feel good all the time.

    Different doses suit different people as David has found.  It's not always the answer and may be worth hanging a bit longer to see if it'll get better.  You might even go through this up and down process on a higher dose, or it might just be better for you.  It's such a trial and error getting our doses just right.
