Cipralex, I upped my dose from 5mg to 10mg...

I started Cipralex about 4 months ago for my anxiety and panic attacks... The attacks started in my second year of college and have gotten worse for the past 2 years! The first 3 weeks on cipralex were BRUTAL! Worse anxiety, tired all the time, nausea and inability to sleep! It got much better as time went on, and after a month or so on the pills, I didn't have any panic attacks!

Recently, I found out that I failed some classes at school and wont be able to graduate as planned, and the panic attacks have come back! (Even though I'm still taking Cipralex)
So I upped my dose from 5mg to 10mg... The panic attacks have lessened, but not I am feeling tired and lethargic all day and experiencing restless and jittery legs all night!

Anyone know what I'm experiencing or have any advice?
