New to Zoloft, what should I expect?

Hello everyone

My psychiatrist just started me on Zoloft (25mg to begin with), he says that I should take 25mg for a week and after that I should try 50mg for another week and go up to 75mg the next week and finally 100mg, he says to try to do this unless I absolutely cannot take more. This is now the 4th day on Zoloft and I'm really nervous as to what I should expect, so far I just feel dull and a little slow and sometimes I feel a little out of touch, i'm assuming that's normal. but what i'd like to know is what should I expect on this medication? what should I expect when I bump up the dosage? I'm a little afraid.

also, once the drug does take affect, how do you feel? what changes that improves things? I suffer from OCD, PTSD, anxiety/stress/panic. Anyone who would like to share their story with me on this medication or any other would be helpful.

thank you!
