How's the anxiety?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

dont think it is that bad ruminating all the time but so wrecked not sure what is going on just hit me again and i feel like crying at this stage and just going back to bed im so frustrated at how poor ive gone, and upset thinking i could have upset the dose

How long now have you been on the present dose?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

15 days doc on the exact same dose,

Peter I still think you're on the right dose now especially with the less anxiety part. The ruminating is something you need to work on with therapy--the meds won't stop that, only raise your spirits. Talk to your psychiatrist about getting some frequent therapy sessions but stay with this dose for now.
