This is my second attempt at 150mg . Finishing up third week. I am almost feeling more anxiety. My doctor mentioned 225mg. I know I should wait longer to see if it kicks in but I’ve been on all doses leading up to 150mg for at least 8 months. Should the anxiety be still going after the third week at a higher dose and if so does it even make sense to go to an even higher dose?
Wow, I’m so sorry that by now you aren’t getting any relief. It can take two or three weeks to feel a difference. If you truly trust your doctor and have gotten complete relief with him or her, I’d certainly voice my concerns to him and see what he says. If you are really getting worse, maybe it’s time to look for another psychiatrist. A good one will not mind you being honest and will listen to your concerns and maybe try you on something that works. I am on Cymbalta , Klonopin and Buspar. I’m have great results. I Love my psychiatrist. Everyone’s body is not the same but if it’s been 8 months I think you have been way to patient. Sorry that I can’t be of more help.
