Hi, I've been on setraline for a couple years now and have been taking 100 mg. My anxiety has been getting worse and I have been having frequent anxiety attacks. I'm about to up my dosage to 150 mg but i was wondering if i will have any side effects with the increased dosage and how long should it be before I start noticing a difference. Thanks in advance.

My hunch is that it will temporarily increase your anxiety, but that after a week or so it will actually improve it. I'm also at 100 mg and am hoping my doc will up it a bit.

Hi,

When I increased my zoloft from 75 to 100 I had
a week of insomnia but it went away and the benefits
kicked in about a week's time so it was worth it for me.

Hope it works for you,

I was wondering when you increase Zoloft. I am on 50mgs. Do you give it 6-8 weeks to see if it is working or should increase it sooner than that?

Hi

For me the benefits of
Increasing Zoloft kicked
in within a couple of
Weeks but its different
For everyone. If you
Haven't shown improvement
After 6-8 weeks I would
Check with your doctor.
I am on 100mg daily.

Best wishes
Starr
