Hey y’all! I just started taking 150mg of sertraline (I was at 75mg before). Are they any side effects I should be aware of from those on a therapeutic dose of Zoloft? I’m a week in to the 150 and I already feel my depressive symptoms beginning to loosen their control. I’ve also read articles explaining to be cautious with making big life decisions when starting or going up a big dose on Zoloft. I don’t know if anyone’s had any experiences with that

      drink water. also, make sure to take it with food. i’ve made the mistake of taking it on an empty stomach before, and it’s pretty uncomfortable

        @Honeydew It made me pretty nauseous for a while before I realized that you should take it with food.

      It can make you really queasy for a while. Give yourself time to adjust. I started it when I was really young and it knocked me clean off my feet for a couple days. Drink lots of water too.

        @gurspaceport I also started Zoloft after taking sertraline for years. And it didn't really affect anything.

          @gurspaceport zoloft is the generic name for sertraline, so they are the same thing!
