Is Zoloft most time effective, every time it is bumped up. I was on for 2 years - 50 mgs. Got anxiety back and bumped to 100. Then six months later I have back again. The Doctor bumped to 150. Do you think it will work? If so, how long will it take to kick in - it has been 4 days.
I'm not sure. From my experience, it seems that medicine works for awhile and then it has to be bumped up and in time it quites working and then you start on a new medicine. It seems like an endless circle. We just have to do what helps us at the time. I think you did great to be on the same mgs for 2 years. It will take longer than 4 days for you to tell a difference. It seems it's ususally 2 to 3 wks to be able to tell. It's so hard in the meantime.
Hello jennytherese. It varies from one individual to another. I would say, especially with the SSRI family of drugs, an increase can be felt anywhere from a few days to a week. Side effects will be minimal if any, since the Zoloft has been in your system for a length of time. Regards pledge
