Who has had success with upping dose of Zoloft? My doc decided to up my dose from 50 to 100 for two weeks and then 200 a week ago. My anxiety went way way up! Today I actually woke up without the urge to cry! And I had a doctor appointment. I told her about the anxiety and how impatient i am while waiting for the new dose to kick in. She suggested we change to Fetzima? But the reviews are very scary for that. Has anyone taken it? My doc did give me Xanax today to help with future anxiety. So What do i do switch medicines or wait for Zoloft? Who has had success with upping Zoloft? Any if that didn't work what has for you? Switch medicines or add ons? and if so what worked for you?
That is a big increase in dosage over a short period of time. Call your doc & see if you can stay on the lower dose longer, higher dosing isn’t always better! Most people don’t consider 25mg even a therapeutic dose but I’m sooo sensitive it is for me. My depression was better within a 2 week & have been on it a year now. Any higher dose and I was a anxious zombie.
