increased dose to 100mg sertraline.

Edited , 5 users are following.

Hi All,

Just looking for a bit of reassurance if possible? I have been on sertraline since October 2019 initially at a 50mg dose. I felt some really good weeks but about week 10-11 anxiety became worse so was increased to 100mg. I have now been taking this dose for around 3 weeks, first week was bad as expected but weeks 2 and 3 were really good. Currently though i'm on day 3 of feeling 'off' again. As I do have periods of good weeks shall i hang it out or is the fact i have had blips this week cause to increase again? Just getting through a bad cold as well so am sure that this is not helping. Thanks in advance everyone.

    Im in a similar position to yourself increased to 100 17 days ago after 13 weeks on 50.Side effects not as bad as when started on 50 which was horrendous just felt it wasnt doing anything or enough so upped to 100 and now anxiety wont go away waiting for each day to get better.Hope it works for u soon.

    I'm in the same situation as you Declan. Been on 100mg for five weeks and was on 50mg for 3 weeks before that. Not much progress yet. Anxiety still worse than before the medication. Keep us posted with how you get on. Cheers, Ed
