I was wondering if every time you up the dose do you get side effects?

    I have only upped the dose once, but I had side effects, yes. They are still sorting themselves out 4 weeks later, but they do get less intense with time.

    When I upped from 20mg to 30mg and take into account was taking Amitryptline too, I was very unwell, found out I am sensitive to all medication.  There are many factors that are involved that can affect how you will feel on these, including, weight, age, menopause, interactions with other meds, interactions with herbs, how long you have been on them, and am sure I have missed some out.  Go with what feels right for you!
