I have been on Sertraline 25mg and Buspar 15mg for 2 weeks & 3 days now. I am pregnant and began taking the medicine due to persistent intrusive thoughts that I would obsess on. My anxiety is still through the roof. The thoughts themselves are not so bad anymore, but now I am beginning to dwell on events/mistakes from my past (I feel like this is due to my anxiety and possibly my depression).. I feel very depressed. I am extremely skeptical to try another medicine. My question is, should I tell the dr to up my dose to 50mg or should I *reluctantly* look into other medicine options.
Here is part of what drugs.com says about Zoloft:
"Do not start or stop taking this medicine during pregnancy without your doctor's advice."
You are on a very low dose. Go to your doctor and discuss your concerns. Both about your continuing depression, and about your pregnancy.
