Dosage Change 100-150mg HELP!

Hello All,

Just found this site- very insightful!

I am currently taking 150mg of Sertraline and 150mg of Trazodone each day. 2 1/2 weeks ago I was upped from 100mg of Sertraline to 150 mg as I was getting my old symptoms of paranoia and anxiety back again. The last two weeks I was doing OK -slightly better (maybe a placebo affect?)- anyway.. I am feeling slightly stressed- actually worrying about worrying!! In anyones experience, will this subside? I have been on Sertraline for about 6 months and it was fine before. I have been on various other antidepressants before (Mirtazapine, citalopram, venlafaxine) and (temazepane, zopiclone) - which did not work at all...

Sorry for the random long email - but should I now cut back on my dose of 150 or keep going feeling I will get better again...

Any help would be REALLY appreicated!!

    Hi

    who updated your dose? your gp or what? I am on 100mg of this and am not sure whether it is working. Still feel like sh*t, y'know! Sounds like you are taking a lot of this stuff & best check with gp or whoever. Write soon. JANEY x

    Hi :-)

    I was put on this by my GP - as 100 was working.. then symptoms started back. I am actually feeling alot better now, moreso than earlier today!

    Yes, I have been told by my doc(s) that I am on a very powerful dose of AD.

    How long have you been on yours? Can I ask what you need it for?

    :-)

    Thank-you very much for that!! Appreciated!!

    I think I am starting to worry less - although it comes and goes..

    Its wierd - because I am worrying that I might start worrying over past experiences again (social phobias that I used to have).... sounds wierd!

    Thanks for encouragment! xx
