Can Zoloft Make Depression Worse?

4 posts in this topic

Posted

Hi again....

So my doc wanted me to increase my Zoloft to 100mg and start taking it at night. So I did that. The first night I took 100mg was Friday and I slept 18 hours and work up feeling super groggy and tired all day. Last night I took another 100mg and slept another 13 hours and woke up feeling just as groggy, except today the random crying spells started again and I bawled and basically had a mini breakdown for about 3 hours. Is this something that happens with increased dosages?

Thanks,

Heather

i've been on 100 mg for about 2 months now and It didnt really effect me at first and I felt just as bad but it started to get better and Im feeling a lot better now. Give it time but there will be ups and downs on the way. At first it takes a while to really kick in but talk to your doctor if it doesnt start working after a week or so.

I'm on about 150 Mgs of Sertraline, and I have to say, I'm about the same as you.

It gets a bit better after a few weeks, but alot better after a month or two.
