My doctor upped my dose of sertraline from 100 mg to 150 mg and put me on buspirone 7.5 mg. That was a week ago and I have loss of appeitite and alittle nausea. Is this normal? I'm also taking alprazolam for anxiety when needed. Please advise if anyone has had this after getting dosage upped?
Sertraline: "Common (1% to 10%): Anorexia, decreased appetite."
"Very common (10% or more): Nausea (up to 26%)."
Buspirone: "Common (1% to 10%): Nausea."
"Uncommon (0.1% to 1%): Decreased appetite."
These are "normal" side effects of increases of dosage and of adding the buspirone. They rarely last more than a week or two and should be getting better every day now.
