Depends: Most patients do not experience side effects. For those that do, increasing the dose can lead to fear and reluctance. I always counsel patients, about to increase their medication, to recall any side effects when they started the med. They should expect the same side effects but to a lesser degree and shorter time. This occurs because the relative change in dose is smaller with each increase. ...Read more
