I’ve been on Zoloft 100 mg for about 14 years. I’ve recently went through a very hard time in my life and was not coping well. My doctor increased my Zoloft to 150. I’ve been on 150 for 10 days and the anxiety is so through the roof I’m so afraid it’s not going to work. Anybody with some feedback I’d appreciate it
Sertraline - Zoloft increase and anxiety?

New or increased anxiety unfortunately is common after a dosage increase but it generally resolves within 2-3 weeks and it should start lessening soon.
It may be a matter of giving it just a little more time but you might ask your doctor about going down to 125mg temporarily to help you adjust more easily.
Don't be afraid it won't work... it will... but just try to get through this rough patch. Be patient and optimistic.
Best regards and I hope you're feeling better quickly now.
PS, don't forget to talk to your doctor.
