I was on 20 mg of fluoxetine for about 8 months. Then doctor increased my medication to 40mg. It’s been about a week and my anxiety and panic attacks seem to be worse. Is that possible ? Should an increase make my anxiety better since I had an increase in medication? I wake up in the early morning with heart palpitations and feel very uncontrolled.. please help...
Hi, Angela! These side effects are "normal" for most people after a dosage increase and they should resolve within about the first two weeks.
If you have questions or concerns you should consult with your doctor for professional advice, but always feel free to post here.
