    Yes I told my Dr that I wanted to double my dose to see if I got better results with my mood. I did and felt no return of the short term side effects on doubling the dose. Worth a try I would have thought.

      I was on 20 for about 4 or 5 years and have been on 40 for 2 or 3. I really need more sleep on 40 and am going to experiment with taking both pills at night to see if I can change my day. At the moment I am taking 1 in the morning and 1 at night ( a recent change)
