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 and buspirone side effects?

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.
