Zoloft (sertraline): Not knowing your age, weight, other meds and health status, it is hard to say. This medication takes up to 4 weeks to get to steady state. Since you have such early positive effects, it would not be a bad idea to talk to your doctor about staying for another week at 25mg. How you are feeling in an important indicator to the meds effectiveness.
