    Hi Sean I would think around another week , but everyone different. How long did it take for the 50mg to work or hasn't  it worked for you?and that's why you have increased it.

      1yr ago I started at 25mg but 6 months after I was increased to 50 MG because I felt my inside he coming back I don't worry feeling inside nervous frankly didnt want to go nowhere then I was on 50 MGs for about 5 to 6 months and I felt it coming back again so talk to my doctor and he said I could up to 75 which I just started a week ago and haven't really had any side effects the first week just maybe some heighten anxiety and some dizziness. So today is 1 week one day and I'm feeling some anxiety today and no appetite

    I think what you are feeling is normal, I think another week you will be feeling much better. Hang on in there . Good luck.

      Maybe I'm feeling this way is because the new dose is now getting in my system.. i guess it just takes time

    Hi Sean, usually just a few days, when I went from 50 to 100 I saw a difference in about 3 days. Hope this helps
