i've gone from 10mg of citalopram to 30mg, i feel i'm getting better and feeling more confident and relaxed, but when do you know when to stop? surely it can only get better with each increased dose?

do i ask to go up despite me feeling ok or do i stop and see how it goes?

SSRIs, like most drugs, tend to have more side-effects with higher doses. With SSRIs it will probably be the sexual stuff that's most noticeable, as well as apathy, etc.

30mg citalopram isn't that much. It's the same as 15mg escitalopram, and some people go up to 30, 40, even 50mg of that.
