Is my dose too low or is my generic no good?

I've been on 20mg XR for about 2 weeks now after previously trying it for a week the month prior. It was paused to detox from Effexor due to their interactions.

The trial week the month prior, very noticeable relief in anxiety, I was awake but not hyper, and the only side effects were just the racing mind I already have. The manufacture was Greenstone.

After getting back on it, the effects are pretty mild, lasts maybe 3 hours, and sometimes doesn't work at all. The manufacture for this batch is Prasco, which doesn't have the best reviews

Is the 20mg once a day? if so that is not a high dose and you may need a booster dose or second xr dose.

Turns out my dose was too low. Unfortunately, I had a provider dead set on telling me that it meant it was too high. So had to jump through hoops
