Sertraline dose

Posted , 4 users are following.

ive beeen taking Sertraline for approx 6 months and my dose is 100 mg. the past week I've noticed my anxiety levels rise and the last couple of days I have started to feel very depressed again. 

Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know what the maximum dose is? I can't face getting out of bed as I feel awful 😥

    Hi I started off on 100 mg of sertraline but it wasn't doing it so went up to 150mgs which is great for me.  The maximum dose is 200mgs. 

    See your doctor and discuss this with them.  S/he might up the dose or even change to a different ad.  I tried two others before I was given sertraline and it is often a case of trial and error.  x

    It sounds like it's not working for you.  Ask your doctor.  I added Abilify to my Sertraline 100 mg. and 4 weeks later feel much better.
