    I'd give it longer to kick in but see your GP again. There may be a different tablet that suits you better. Hope this helps

    Rather than concern yourself with the the precise dose, could I suggesr u look for other supplementary ways to help yourself. Maybe look for something like a psychotherapy e.g.CBT to add to the drugs. Look for things to do that take your mind away from your problems, e.g. Exercise, recreation, etc. making your treatment more multidimensional could be the thing for u. Don't forget to be kind to yourself, reward yourself for your efforts.

    it works for me at least. I know we r all different but give it a go perhaps.
