Upping sertraline dose 50mg to 100mg

harry75 Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Hello everyone, I’ve been taking 50mg for six weeks and for the first 2 weeks I felt terrible,anxious,hopeless and helpless then started to Improve over the next three week to a point where is felt better but still nowhere near ok. We decided to up 100mg a week ago but I’ve been feeling the same as I felt when I started on 50mg is this just the upped dosage this or should I stop taking them??

       We really can't give out medical advice, if you aren't feeling too good on your stronger dose I would ring your GP.

    @harry75 hi and welcome to scope, how are you today? I'm afraid non of us are qualified to give such advice and it would be best discussed with your GP.
