I have taken 25mg of Zoloft for a little over a month and my doctor says that since she sees slight improvement that she wants to up it to 50. I hate medication side effects and had bad nausea when first starting the 25. I’m nervous to up the dosage because I don’t want my anxiety to get even worse than it already is. Has anyone had experience with increased anxiety with upping the dosage?
I experienced the same issue every time I went up in dosage. My body was very sensitive to Zoloft and I couldn't handle 50mg right away, it was just too much nausea, anxiety, etc. I had to cut all the way down to 12.5mg for a few weeks and then to 25mg. Currently I am on 37.5mg and with each increase my anxiety came back to the point I was having panic attacks again. Good news for me is after the first week the anxiety went away. Everyone is different, but hopefully your anxiety will subside once it gets into your system. It all just takes time so hang in there and good luck!
