... I am still getting depression. Should I have my doctor raise it or wait 2 more weeks?
Give it a little more time... IF nothing in 2 more weeks... then go to 150... give that some time (2-3 weeks)... if you are still experiencing depression the max dose of sertraline is 200 mgs... you should be feeling better... if not then try something else like paxil,effexor... or lexepro... I took sertraline for years... at first it made my symptoms minimal but over the course it fizzled out... Remeron is also another med to try.Treating depression is a hit or miss process.It took years to find the right med. for me... Stay with your treatment don't get discouraged... also I am here if you need to talk... Ive suffered from both sever anxiety as well as dysthemia for my entire life... good luck
Wait a little longer. Six weeks is still a relatively short time. If the Zoloft/sertraline is actually doing something beneficial for you at your current dose, be grateful for that... some of us don't notice any benefit from these types of meds for depression. It is important to remember that antidepressants are not a cure for depression or anxiety and you need to look for some things you can do in your life to improve how you feel. Good luck to you.
