    Re: How you doing guys

    Thing is this dose of 225mg has worked well for me over the last few months and still is. Just the self harming, which is mild, has come back otherwise i am doing ok. I guess i am worried that, like yourself, an increase will make things worse.

    Or it could just make it better. The only way of finding out is by giving it a go unfortunately. You could just try a very small increase of 37.5mg and see how you get on for a couple of weeks

    With my increase making things worse, it was because I had only been on 300 for a couple of weeks before I jumped up to 375mg so it was just too much too soon. Now i’ve been back on 300 for a few more weeks and I feel more settled although I think I might need to increase by 37.5 again. As you have been on 225 for a while you might find a tiny increase won’t be so bad.

    How’s it going Maca? Did you go for an increase?

    I decided to increase again to 337.5mg. The anxiety was much better on 300 but I still had some lingering depression. I’m now 9 days into the increase, depression has lifted but anxiety is back. I can’t win . Maybe I need 318.75mg but can’t see how I would manage that!

    I am going to increase once I have the gp appointment on the 21st so still plodding along. Mood is low and sleep poor but I get flurries of happiness so I know it exists.

    Hi Maca, i’m still not great. Not feeling as depressed but the anxiety and intrusive thoughts are still there and getting me down. I’m two weeks back on 337.5mg now. My psychiatrist said ring her if I’m no better after two weeks but everywhere you look online says to give an increase at least a month. I’m trying to look back at my old posts to get an idea how I was on previous increases but it appears my old thread has been deleted

    I know its frustrating but a month is more realistic to notice changes.
    Keep that in mind and stay safe.
