Hello spk1,

If your doctor states that it's safe for you to do so,then by all means have the dosage increased.You may want to begin a journal to keep track of your emotions.This way you have something concrete to present to your physician.It can also be a helpful tool to help you attain insight into your progress or lack thereof.

Respectfully
Phoenix

Re: Increasing prozac

Thank you for your insight, I start a new job tomorrow and i think it has overwelmed me, i know once it is underway i will be fine, I did take the extra 10 on top of the 40 mgs and i will keep a log for the doctor, i take klonipin for anxiety as well and i am hoping the anxiety goes away as i become used to the new job, seems it has been a long road. spk

spk1,

Good luck with your new job.
There's probably some anxiety associated with it but as you are taking klonopin also,you should be alright.

I'm wishing you success with both your new job and medication dosage.

Respectfully
Phoenix
