Brief history - long history of anxiety and panic attacks and eventually a breakdown in July 2017 never medicated previously.
Started on cipralex 10mg, 0.25 xanax as needed for panic attacks in July.
Came off cipralex in nov 2017 feeling pretty good bar the odd panic attack here and there which I was using 0.25 xanax for.
By Jan 2018 the anxiety was back in full force so I started back on the cipralex and had zero relief.
Came off it again in April.
We are very limited on medication options here in Middle East so the only other med the doctor could prescribe was seroquel. She asked me to read up on it and let her know my thoughts - I’m not keen on taking it.
I suggested trying an increase in the cipralex from 10-15mg she hasn’t prescribed above 10mg before so she was very reluctant but ultimately said its up to me.
So my question is this - how likely is it that 15 mg would make the difference if I’m not feeling any relief at 10mg?
