    Note to my future self - Seroxat

    I keep coming back to No More Panic everytime I am depressed and starting/upping seroxat (or fluoxetine once). I always seem to forget how bad the first weeks are.

    I am now on day 21 after upping seroxat from 25 mg to 30 mg. Iíve felt so horrible, anxious and depressed. The last days have been better, hope it lasts

    This is a very strong reaction from what is a modest dose increase. Did you mean 25mg to 50mg perhaps?

    No, 25 mg to 30. But other increases have been worse

    I went from 40mg to 50mg a few months (actually probably 5) and to be honest, I'm not sure what were side effects and what was how I was feeling at the time.

    I still have some bad days as well as the good and to be honest some days are a mixture of both.

    Are you having any other help? Counselling/therapy?

    Yes, but as I said, I'm not sure I'd they were side effects or how I was feeling.

    Although it is common to feel more anxious when starting/increasing medication.

    Yes it is very crap. When I increased I found it very useful to come on here for advice. I was so impatient for results too, it was good to be reminded that these things take time.
