I am ready to increase my sertraline dose from 25mg to 50mg I just want to ease towards that dose. I have been on 25mg for 6 weeks and I feel great, but as I lay in bed at night I find myself getting anxiety and every little body pain I feel scares me a bit. Therefore I believe I am ready to be at a higher dose, I am just nervous about going straight for a double dose as the side effects at the beginning of my treatment were very rough for me. Any thoughts/advice/experiences would be very much appreciated. T.I.A
Sertraline - Has anyone split their 25mg tablets to slowly increase to 50mg?

Follow jak's advice... as sensitive as you are I fear doubling your dose could be a bit too much all at once.
Hi. Hope you are doing well. I also felt as you did and I split my pills in half to add up to 37.5 for a week, then I moved up to 50 mg, which ended up being a good fit for me. It still takes awhile to level out at the dose that works for you. Good luck!
