Well: 120 mg is a big jump from 60 mg. You may want to take 90 mg daily and see if your symptoms improve. Hope this helps!

Depression: If you are not comfortable or unsure about the medication your Doctor prescribed then it is advisable to get a second opinion from a Psychiatrist after you have had a complete physical exam by your Primary Care Physician to rule out any underlying illness. A Clinical Psychologist can also help you with psychotherapy.
