Med Increase

Posted , 3 users are following.

MY doctor is increasing me to 10 from 5 . What should i expect? 5 didn't do anything for my anxiety. i actually got more anxious. I am wondering if i will feel better and will the side effects get really bad? PLEASE HELP me understand what i have to look forward to.

    So far everything you said is normal. Starting or increasing will give you some side effects including anxiety (I know, right). Anyways you probably will have more side effects when moving to 10. It's completely normal. Remember that side effects mean that the meds are working things out inside you (for the better!). Just stay positive and go one day at a time. You will be fine!
