depression/med dosage question

Hi all, I have a question regarding upping medication for depression. i know that y'all aren't my doctor (I saw her this past week) but I'm looking more for personal experiences. Since I have been on my meds steady for three months, we evaluated if it was time to up them from 20 mg to 40 mg daily. I said no, because while I feel better mentally, the current dosage leaves me really drowsy, even when I take it at night. my doc said she understood and just refilled my 20 mg script. When I was recounting the appointment with a friend, she said she experienced something similar, but when she upped, it made her less drowsy and she had a better result overall.

Has anyone else experienced something similar? Logically, to me, it seems if 20 mg makes me that tired, 40 mg would make me twice as tired, but I am not sure how that works in regards to medication. Any advice or input?

TL/DR: what did you have for dinner? I had fried green tomatoes, wild mushroom crepes, and southwestern pasta. I love pass around dinners ☺️
