    Hi Vivienne

    I started on 25mg of sertraline while tapering off mirtazapine,I am now up to the maximum of 200mg,it seems to be working a bit better now.

    It can take up to 6 weeks to kick in

    I upped my dose to 200mg 3 weeks ago....sleeping, eating much better, doing more, going out more. Just need that heavy low feeling to lift. Fingers crossed it will happen soon.

    Hi I started off on 100 mgs of sertraline,  but after a few weeks it wasn't helping so it was upped to 150 mgs.  I find this much more effective for me.  Your doctor can try upping it again until s/he finds the right level for you.  x
