I've been experiencing my first anxiety (AG/PD) relapse after 7 years, since 3.5 months ago right after dropping from 50 mg/day Luvox to 37.5 mg/day.
I'm finding this relapse very stubborn. I dosed back up to 50 mg/day about 2.5 months ago, and have even gone up beyond my normal dose for a month (62.5 mg/day), and still haven't seen that much improvement. If dropping down caused a relapse, doesn't that logically mean my original dose (50 mg/day)was at theraputic levels and going back to it should make me feel like my old self within a month or so?
I'm not expecting miracles and am focussing most of my recovery effort on exposure (have not avoided going anywhere), but I'm actually getting some bouts of anxiety worse than the original condition, which shocks me because I thought this thing would be easy to tackle this time considering I'm experienced now.
What the heck is going on?!
