    It will get better Rachel. I'm coming up to 6 weeks now & I still struggle from time to time but the good is outweighing the bad now I just can't wait for the next 2 weeks to be here & hopefully feel even better. My anxiety when I increased was worse in the morning too & I felt like crap but just you hang in there it will get better xx we are all here for you no matter what xx

      Are u six in total or six on 40mg. I did feel si much better after 8weeks on 20mg. Today I feel so low I can't concentrate at all like my mind is blank and disconnected from everything. Iv been here before I just hope its a faster recovery and hope to god this is it and 40,mg won't give in on me. I'm so so scared of getting lower then this I'm just about gripping on. Thank you for u support I really need it xx
