Upping my dose

After 6 weeks on 10mg my psych has decided to up my dose to

15mg. She has suggested I take 5mg in the morning and continue my 10mg at night. Has anyone tried splitting their doses this way?

    I'm thinking of going up to 20mg, I might just take 15mg for a week then up to 20mg. I have always taken in the morning.

    I was on 10mg for a week or so then Dr told me to up it to 20mg but I was to scared as the side effects were horrible, so bought a pill cutter and took 15mg but my anxiety came back worse. Been on 20mg for 2 days and I feel a lot better but still having anxious moments through out the day

      I'm going on holiday tomorrow so I'm going to wait until I get home. I will prepare myself for the side effects all over again. I was on 10mg for over a year and stopped. Couldn't cope so we u straight back on them it's been 2 months now x

      Sorry to hear you are suffering. It will get better now you on 20mg. Mine has subsided being on 20 for a week now. But mornings are worst. Why are you thinking about taking in the mornings from 6pm?

      Only because my anxiety is horrendous in the day. Thought maybe If I change the time. As this seems to have worked for a few people.
