I have a question , I have been on 10mg for a little under a year now and I'm thinking I need to be upped to 20mg I'm starting to feel sad and anxious again. I'm just wondering if I his is my only option? How has it been for you being upped to 20?? If you have any advise I'd greatly appreciate it!

      Hi Crystal.  I was originally on 10 then dr put me up to 20 as like you I started feeling anxious again.  I was feeling absolutely great for a few years so I decided myself to lower the dosage, big mistake, so I put myself back up to 20 and my dr agreed that was ok. Have a chat with your dr before increasing. I hope you feel back to normal soon ,
