    To increase dose or not to increase

    Hi guys, when you have a blip, do you ever consider increasing your med?
    Im on 150 mg of sertraline daily, and my gp said i could increase to 200mg if need be.
    Now at the moment, i dont know if im having a blip or if its the sert that needs increasing...I dont really want to increase the dose.
    How long would you leave your anxiety before increasing meds?

    Hi hun
    My last blip was ten days, I reckon 2 weeks and I would think about increasing.
    When was your last real blip though?
    Mine was 3 weeks ago, still underlying but doesn't overwhelm me enough to consider an increase. I find of busy I don't think about it which my new job helped me with xx

    Hmmm when I have a real blip it's all day and usually a few in a row still.
    I am fine at night but have been for months.
    A difficult decision personally I would wait it out a bit longer.

    Well I am around 6 months into it and still lurks about at times really getting to me.
    I find it hard to relax in my own company still at times whereas used to love it.
    The hard bit with a blip is believing it will pass even though it always does, I have underlying anxiety tonight do you not alone xx
