Thanks Matt,
I figured you would understand about the exam. I'm sure you have had to go through that as well. (I'll avoid making a bad pun about oral exams and dentristy.)

I was guessing that upping it now wouldn't help other than perhaps a placebo effect. But I think the chance of SE's is not worth the risk. I don't have access to benzo's, although my doc offered last time I was in. It just didn't feel right.

My nerves about this are more self-doubts and the fear of rejection which would come with failure. I'm not sure there is a pill that can help me with that. I'm taking a lot of CBT-related advice, though, with reframing the situation, relaxation, postitive self-talk, and rehearsal.

I actually feel pretty competent when I am with my clients. It's just the authority figures "judging" me that triggers all kinds of stuff.

I am planning to go qid as well with my tabs. I try to evenly space out my three right now, but I am not always successful as I don't get up early to take the meds on days I can sleep in and I sometimes and late with the afternoon one. Wouldn't it be great if they would come up with an XR for Nardil? Never happen, of course, but we can dream....

Thanks for the advice and support! Hoping you continue to have positive experience as well.
