I find it works best to acknowledge that they are careful and considered in prescribing medicine and thank them for taking good care of your health. Then I say the meds have been a bit helpful and you wonder if it would be possible to try a slightly higher dose because you notice x or y (giving examples where you think a higher dose might help). Don’t bring up drug seeking because it will sound like you are. If she refuses to try a higher dose, ask what she might suggest to help with the problems you are still having. If she wont increase or offer other solutions you might need to look for another provider.
