Two weeks ago my doctor increased my Zoloft dosage from 25 mg to 50 mg and I've had debilitating anxiety for since day three of the increase. The anxiety has lessened a little in the last day but I'm wondering if this is a side effect that's not going to go away. I'm quite scared.

That can be a normal side effect, as reported by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and weight changes.

Side effects usually tend to be transient, as explained by the NIH, and they should go away, once your body gets used to the new dosage, but that may take 4 to 5 weeks.

However, if its gets severe, or doesn't go away, you should consult your doctor.

Is there anything else I can help with?
