Hi everyone. So, i have been on cit for about 3-4 years now and i have had my dose increased twice. The first time i felt slightly more on edge but it wasnt too bad. The second time (increase to 40mg) i felt awful but i didnt know it was due to the increased dose. I thought i was going through a bad spell. Anyway, i was prescribed the 40mg in May and took them for about 2 weeks. It ruined my holiday as i was so anxious and weepy. Didnt know why. i thought it must just be the higher dose not being suitable for me so went back down to 30mg.
I want to increase to 40mg now that i know that increasing doses can increase anxiety in the short term before getting better. But i am absolutely dreading it. Last time it made me feel so anxious and upset all the time and id sit at my desk constantly needing the toilet (n.o2). Its so embarrassing as the toilet in our office is right next to our receptionist. Im dreading this happennening again now im upping my dose. I can feel it starting already and i have only had 2 tablets.
Does anyone have any advice on how to cope with this increased anxiety as i am definitly going to ride it out as i want to feel better. But i cant keep going to the toilet and crying all the time ..... Do i just ride it out or is there anything that can help with these horrible side effects?
Thanks all.. xxx
