Anything you take with medication can have an impact on how the medication works. So that is a possibility. Stress can create so many physical symptoms too, including feeling really tired all the time. The better you manage the stress, the better you’ll feel overall.
Also, the increased dose could be too high for you. If it’s too high, it can really drag you down, what people often refer to as the zombie effect. If that’s the case, your doctor needs to consider lowering the dose.
No matter what, you must talk to the prescribing doctor about all of this and work with them to make improvement with your medication.
