Missed 2-3 weeks of 100mg Zoloft. HELP!

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi everyone...

I missed 2-3 weeks of my 100mg dose of Zoloft. I take it nightly. I fell back into a depression, and stopped taking it entirely. I am WELL aware of how dumb this is. I don't need to be scolded. I know. 

My question is, in order to get back on it, should take it slow ( ie 50mg for a week, 75mg for another, etc. ) [ and what/how long of dosages should I follow ] or jump back into it at 100mg?

Thank you X

    The only person who could answer you properly would be a medically trained person, ie a dr.

    It could be dangerous asking a load of random people

    I agree completely with Vickylou. You should see your doctor and ask him what you should do now. As well meaning as anyone might be, only a doctor should be advising you. Please make an appointment and get the help and information you need. Good luck.

    I agree with the others - your doctor is the best person to ask.

    I don't know how long it will take you to get an appointment. Here in the UK it can sometimes take two or three weeks to get a GP appointment. In that instance, personally, I would start back on a low dose until I can talk to my doctor. At least then I would be getting some back in my system.

    But please speak to your doctor.

      I must be very lucky with my drs as I always get in the same day. However my daughter had to wait 4 weeks.

      I used to work as a medical receptionist and if you couldn’t get an actual appointment, you can always get a telephone consultation

    Hi if you are in the UK you could always ask your pharmacist as they are the experts in drugs.  x
