Sometimes a dosage increase is needed. It usually depends on how much stress you are under and how you are handling it. For me, when my stressors increase, so does my anxiety even though I'm on meds. It just really depends on HOW much stress I'm under. Also, our bodies change as we get older and stay on meds so sometimes things just need to be tweaked.
This is not something to worry about. Just knowing that the medication helps should alleviate your anxiety. I spent years telling myself "well if it gets really bad, I can always go back on medication." And guess what...when it got bad...I went back on medication and I'm feeling great.
