    In most cases yes to both, however, as with everything about ADs, there are no guarantees.

    It should do as you're not starting from scratch.

    It is probably too early as plasma levels of the increase to 100mg won't have stabilized yet, but has there been any change in side-effects and anxiety severity?

    Anxiety gets less of an afternoon/evening the shakes seem to have subsided and I managed to eat more yesterday. Wake up feeling irritated but does wear off

    It might be the typical increase in anxiety that often accompanies SSRI dose increases, or just one of those inexplicable, usually short-lived, setbacks common to ADs. They can be unpredictable meds prone to producing a 1 step forward then 2-3 back shuffle which can be unnerving, but doesn't mean anything significant. The thing to keep an eye on is the good periods. As long as they steadily increase in frequency, duration and quality you're on the right track.
