My psychiatrist recently increased the dosage on my sertraline. The dosage was changed from 100mg to 150mg. While my thoughts have improved, my mood has become unstable.

For the last few days, my mood was okay when I got up, but came crashing down later at night. It was so bad that I felt like I was going to cry.

Today, my mood was a little on the depressive side when I got up, but now I just feel anxious and jittery.

It's been about 5 weeks that I've been on this dosage. Is it normal to feel bad this far in? Do I just need to wait a little longer, or is this a problem with the new dosage?
