I have been on 25 mg of Sertraline/Zoloft for almost 4 weeks. I am feeling a little better, my intrusive thoughts are having a harder time forming in my mind it seems. However, I am battling guilt and shame from a past action. The OCD is preventing me from setting the thought aside.. Making it nearly impossible to think straight and move past it.. My doctor upped my dose to 50 mg daily. I am very apprehensive to try it. My daughter's birthday party is a week and a half away. I'm nervous that upping the dose now will make me feel worse and I won't be able to do what to do for my child's birthday party that she has been looking so forward to. Any advice would be helpful..please and thank you!!!
Follow the Dr's instructions, you're already used to the med so the adjustment period will be very short. Also, if you're not already, non medication action such as counseling will help much better with the guilt issue than more meds will. The meds will help you bury it, the right counseling will set you free.
Hang in there.
Thank you all for your quick responses. I am nervous but, you guys could be very right. It could easily be the extra push I need to start being happy again.. It may make me even more able to do what I need to do for my daughter. I just have to keep my mind in the most positive place possible, which is easier said than done with my OCD bully living inside my mind..But, I refuse to continue doubting my ability to overcome this. Thanks again guys!
