Does higher dose Antidepressant make a difference?

Im on 10mg out of 20mg dose of escitalopram and thinking upping at least to 15mg. Ive been only on it for 9 days. Should i wait longer to see the results or take a higher dose?

Antidepressants can take up to a month to work from what I read about them. Antipsychotics work faster.

You should wait longer. You don’t know the full effects of an antidepressant for a month or more and your pdoc will tell you if they want you at a higher dose.

I use it for anxiety and didn’t feel a difference between 10mg and 20mg.
