Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It must be anxiety that is causing these symptoms. I would advise you to continue the same medicine with the same suggested dose. No need to change the dose without the advise of the doctor, but try to low down the stress.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist further.
