Zoloft (sertraline) 100 mg
« on: May 14, 2014, 10:27:34 PM »
So I've been on setraline for a while. I started on 25 then 50 then 75 and I started taking 100 four days ago. If i still feel anxious and have panic attacks in a month, is it best just to change medicines?So I've been on setraline for a while.

If you've only been on sertraline for a month, then you should definitely give it more time. I have been on it since the end of December and have slowly been increasing my dose to 125 mg. It takes 3-4 weeks from the the last dose increase before you can really tell if it is working for you or not. I would definitely give it a bit more time if I were you.

I'd give it at least 6 weeks, 8 would be better, and even then I suggest going up to 150mg before pulling the plug. Some of us need to be on high doses to get any benefit from antidepressants.
