Our expert says:
I'm not sure whether I'd favour doubling the dose, especially of a long-acting drug. As the depression you describe seems related to obviously psychological factors and stresses in your work, you'd probably be better served by seeking out a psychotherapist / counsellor using a well-tested and valuable modern technique such as CBT, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, which usually tests out as effective as antidepressants, with lasting benefits, and no side-effects !
