I have decided when I have a medicaiton dose increase or try a new med to give it a fair chance and unless the side effects seem way out of control to stick it out which has worked with the last two meds. Each person is different but when you increase a med you will have some of the same side effects. I would give it 4 weeks at least and you may feel better sooner.
My Pdoc always reminds me the meds won't do it all but they will help you have better days.
Glad to hear you weekend away was good. I always find being away from the daily routine decreases my anxiety as I am having fun or just relaxing with no mail, work, bills or phone calls.
