    Hi Sue, I'm a different Brenda, sorry to hear about your experience, I have been told that you will have up and down on Zoloft , if that's what your on. If it is too much talk to your doctor , let him know what's going on. Very important to keep him up on your experience with medicine. Take care and hang in there.

    Hi Sue

    , Yes, when you increase you do an increase in symptoms, but it goes away , so hang in there wink. I'm on 50 but the increase from 25 was pretty rough. It gets better.

    Just remember that it's just the medication. None of the anxeiety is real. It hard but it worked for me. CBT helped me understand my bad thinking and helped me correct this. When I started on Zoloft I go about 10x worse, but it gets 20x better,

    Usually when you increase your side effects tend to come back. Give it 4-6 weeks smile
