Hi, my doctor bumped me to 15 mg escitalopram after 24 days at 10 mg.

My anxiety and panic was subsiding though my depression (which is somewhat anhedonic, numb, no crying) wasn’t. Neither was my insomnia.

Last night I decided to tough it out without sleeping medicines (which weren’t giving me more than a few hours of sleep anyway) and it was terrible as my racing thoughts seemed worse than ever (they hadn’t really subsided much anyway). So now I’m wondering if this is normal, if there’s hope for the depression (esp. the sort-of number type) to lift somewhat after three weeks at 10 mg, and if I can expect it to get worse again first now that I’ve bumped it up.

Any similar experience would be welcome.
