See your doctor: Like all antidepressants, it may take 4-6 weeks to feel the full benefit, but you should see at least some benefit within a couple of weeks zoloft can be dosed up to 150 mg so if you are on a lower dose, the dose can be increased. If you are already on150 mg then it is time to consider another antidepressant or adding abilify, (aripiprazole) wellbutrin, or Remeron to supplement the effects of the zoloft.
