Hey Lusk, I wish I could help you out on this but I can't give you any clear answers as far as increase or not. The only thing I can tell you is my experience w/Lexapro. After being placed on it several months ago, I began to feel better - for awhile. It never fully made my depression go away, but it did make some what of a difference. After several months, I slipped into a dark depression. I continued the meds hoping it would soon cease the darkness of depression. Unfortunately it didn't. I had no choice but to go back to the doctor. I was placed on Effexor XR and i'm glad. This took place only a few weeks ago and the depth of my depression is lifting all the time.
I wish I could give you a more concrete answer as to your question. Maybe talking to your dr. about
your concern is your best bet??? Best of luck on your finding your answer. Keep us posted.
