Depression board


just wondering if it is ok to take two 12.5 mg paxil crs, cuz i have been on 12.5 for 1 1/2 weeks and no results. I would like an increase, but still have the same prescription of 12.5.....my depression is very severe. I will go to the doctor and get the increased mg/dose next month but for now is this ok?

No. Call your doctor now if you want to change your dosage. Besides, if you double up now, you will run out of your prescription before you get to the doctor.
