upping sertraline dose from 50mg to 100mg

Hi

I started sertraline a couple of months ago and 2 weeks ago the dr suggested i increased from 50mg to 100mg.

I cant bring myself to do it, im scared incase i get loads of symptoms from upping them and just feel worse.

Its so pathetic coz i probably wouldnt feel any worse than i do now

Has anyone else upped their dose and just felt better for it?

thanks

love mandie

Re: upping sertraline dose from 50mg to 100mg

Hi Mandie

I was on Sertraline for a few years - and I went from 50 to 100mg without physically feeling any different. It did work better for my anxiety at 100mg.

I am going to increase my Effexor dosage soon - and even though I had no problems with increasing Sertraline, I'm still a bit worried!

Good luck with it!

Re: upping sertraline dose from 50mg to 100mg

Hi ,I have gone from 50 to 100mg and feel much better. I have been on them for 2 years and went back down to 50 but did'nt feel so good, so am back on 100mg and I am fine. The only thing I do have is when I am walking the dogs I keep imagining 1 of them getting run over or something bad happening to my grandchildren, but generally I feel fine.
Good luck

Re: upping sertraline dose from 50mg to 100mg

Hi,
I was on 200mgs not that long ago the only side effects i had were insomnia,feeling restless but it was the same when i was on 50mgs and didn't go any worse when i was on 200mgs (that doesn't mean you will though).
My psychiatrist said that it's a common side effect with the SSRI's.The same things happened with everyone that i've tried previously.
I have now been put on Lofepramine which helps me to sleep.Everybody reacts different to medication and what doesn't work for one person doesn't mean it won't work for them.

Good luck with them though and give them a try. I think side effects occur when you initially start them so i think you'll be ok.

Wombat.

Re: upping sertraline dose from 50mg to 100mg

i have taken sertraline for over a year now. i was first on 50mg and then upped to 100mg. i have previously been on 8 different medications and this is by far the best. my panic attacks have subsided but the anxiety is still there on a dailt basis but is subsiding. very very slowly.

Re: upping sertraline dose from 50mg to 100mg

I upped my dose from 25 to 50mg recently and the worst side effect I've found is fatigue and tiredness. Tried taking it at night but this gave me insomnia so reverted to taking it in the morning. The night sweats have also been a problem but as they say - no pain, no gain! Everything comes at a price unfortunately. I just hope that with time the side effects will subside...

Good luck to you guys too.
