AFter all its making me feel worse than my baseline and even drugs that helped a little and then pooped out never made me feel emotionally worse before feeling better. Maybe side effects before feeling better but not more apathetic and depressed.

If 60mg is leaving you in some sort of in-between physiological state, you might very well feel a little weird (brain-fog, memory impairment, cognitive slowing, anxiety, loose stool, sweating, dry mouth, bruxism). Raising the dosage up to 75mg might bring you above the threshold of non-response. I would say that if your depression worsens significantly after a dosage increase, you might then abort the trial after a few days.

I would do this but my biggest concern, rightly or wrongly, is that I pass my class and get the most out of it. These trials wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't in school right now.
