Can any of you fellow anxies relate any experiences with SSRI dose increases and whether or not it was a good or bad thing?

I recently increased from 20 to 40 mg of Celexa.

At 20, after a month, I had a lot of primary symptoms under control, with only good side effects.

Now we're at 40 and I can't tell if my SEVERE laziness, lethargy, slowness of thinking, is just a side-effect of the drastic increase and now I must adjust, or if I'm now taking too much and I should go back to sticking with what wasn't broke.

Apathy is a pretty common side-effect of SSRIs, I'd talk to your doctor about this.
