I wouldn't increase your dosage till talking to your doctore first. Try calling and explain to them how you are feeling and your insurance coverage. Come back and talk, it can help too.

Amy -- Are you seeing a psychiatrist or the family doctor? I would suggest talking to a psychiatrist. My Pdoc has me on small doses of both Wellbutrin and Lexapro so sometimes we need a combo. I know it's hard w/o insurance -- at least CALL your doctor right away before you do something on your own. Hope you feel better soon.
