no doc sat had to go to bed for 2 hours same sunday but they were on way to burn out monday very bad but came out of it here and there but very mixed between energy and tiredness and up and anxious, today shattered from 7 till 1pm just couldnt get off the couch want ed to go to bed but resisted went on computer for bit and came out of it for hour or so then started to have more energy but high anxiety , them mixed again between anxiety and tiredness , say its all too do with not been stable on them and all the moving round has made it harder but i hope good days will start to come soon , do you think they should doc

OK Peter--at this point don't change the dosage at all. I know it's hard but if you can stay on this dose for now I think the good days will return soon. A lot of this has been the upping and downing of your dose and for now you really need to stay the course. Give it until the end of the week and let me know how your are my friend.
