Zoloft Dosages?

Recommended Posts

Hi all im a 27 yo male that cant seem to get out of this rut.I was given 50mg of zoloft and have been on it for four weeks. i feel that it has made some improvments as some days im now able to leave the house and drive places but i still try to stay clear of all shops which makes eveything hard.My ? is has any one got good resaults from upping the does to 75mg? will i get all the side affects of first starting or none as i have it in my system already? Very willing to put up with bad side affects if a higher dose is going to help.. Just want to be able to function again and go out looking for a job so any life experences would be much great. Cheers :)

I started Zoloft at 50 mg and am now at 150 mg, increasing by 25 mg at a time. For me, the increases have made a substantial difference; In fact, 50 mg has little noticeable effect. The first time I increased my dose, I was able to use money again - something I previously couldn't. Unfortunately, this was temporary but it has made treatment seem plausible. If I am reading correctly, you went from 0-50 in one step, so increasing the dose by 25 mg should not produce the first starting side effects to the same degree, if at all. If you think a greater dosage would help, I recommend that you try it. That being said, I am not a medical professional, and you should consult one before changing your dose. 


Hoping you can find some relief from your problems,

Many have said there is no difference between 50 and 75 mg. Most go from 50 to 100 mg. On 100 mg I was definitely less anxious and more happy than 50 mg, but I was also more relaxed, which can be a bad thing depending on how you look at it. I guess I wasn't lazy, but more content with laying around. Also, my sex drive was never hampered by Zoloft, in fact I would say sex was better.
