It normally can take 6-8 weeks to feel the full effects of the medication but since you doubled your dosage it may take a couple of weeks longer.
You might want to give it more time but if you haven't seen any improvement at all by then let your doctor know and get their professional advice.
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better soon.
