I think you need to give it at least 2-3 months. Unfortunately, a higher dose may make you sleepier. Or it may not. The only way to find out is to try. If I were you, I would give it a shot. If it is really bad, just reduce back to 60mg and give it a month or two to evaluate if it is working at all. For SA, higher doses are often required before benefit is seen. I am on 90mg for depression, not SA, and have not seen the same problems as you with daytime sleepiness, but I increased VERY gradually, 15mg each week until I reached 90mg. In fact, my biggest problem is insomnia, which has gotten much worse all of a sudden at 90mg...
