Just checking in to see how everyone is doing. I have a direct question though...I'm still on Zoloft 100 MG right now. My therapist is talking about moving it up to therapeutic levels of 150 and 200 MG. Is this a good idea? Or can Zoloft be combined with other antidepressants? If so, which ones?
I do feel a little better and a little more able to deal with things in everyday life. However, I still frequently have bad "breakdowns" as you will, and cry uncontrollably. I still have urgent suicidal thoughts and sometimes take action but stop at the last minute. 50 MG does nothing for me. Does taking 150 MG mean that I would take the 100 MG and the 50 MG tablets each morning? Or do they have specific tablets?
50 mg work for about a week for me. I am on 100mg for the past 5 weeks and I am hoping to increase to 150 next month.
If your body is still not quite right on the 100mg then talk to your dr about increasing. Everyone is different. Some need a little more. It doesnlt mean that we have it worse than others, it is just the way our bodys are.
Thank you J2 and Sport for the much needed help. I'm almost beginning to feel sort of "tired?" of Zoloft...weird yeah? I think the next time I see my therapist, we are going to talk about moving ot up from the 100 MG to 150 MG. How do you do that? Will I have to pick up two bottles of medicine every time I go to the pharmacy? Like a bottle of the yellow 100 MG and another with the blue 50 MG? Would I take both in the morning when I first wake up like I always do?
I had a bad day today... I tried really hard to and help myself. Bad incident happened this morning. I'm just so beat right now too. I feel that another major depressive episode has hit me. I'm feeling so tired of having these. I don't want to have to deal with it anymore. Whew...I'm so sleepy right now. I think I'll try and get some sleep now. Thanks for listening.
