I went to the psychiatrist today. He wants to get me back to 100% as my confidence in myself has been shot. He increased my Zoloft from 100 to 150 mg. This seems so high to me. I am not a drug person but I am also taking 300 mg of Welbutrim and I know the medications are not reaching all my symptons of anxiety and major depression. Any similar experiences or suggestions. I am in counseling.
Is 150 mg of Zoloft a lot?

Im currently taking 125 mg. Thats just cause my doc wants me to build up to it a li slower. So 150 really isnt a lot if you have bn taking it for a while. How long have you bn taking it ang what mg jumps did you do up into this point if i may ask ?
Hello outsidesue. Your dose is almost I might say average. A lot of people come to settle on the 200 mg per day. and its not uncommon to hear of people on higher doses. 300 to 350mg. The wellbutrin really does make the zoloft work that much more effectively than say, taking it (zoloft) alone.It does this through a chemical, that works on your part of the brain, that when released, gives the zoloft, say a extra boost/kick of sorts, that forces the zoloft to work at 100% of its potentional. You'll have to be patient, and see how the increase works. best to you.
Well, you've heard from the best-pledge. I can't add much to the information from the friends above. The Generic Wellbutrin, Bupropion, recently had an FDA recall as it was found not to be as effective as was represented. You can find the related article on this site or by Googling.
Best of luck. Please let us know how you're doing.

You can't go by me. I am not taking any pills. I took the smallest dosages and I didn't feel any different. I got better without taking any pills. I got stronger by not taking any pills. I prefer not to take any pills. I know that this option is not for everyone... I am not taking anything that will later on give me adverse effects. Take xarelto. It causes you external bleeding. I know that my answer is not helpful. JUst keeping it real.
