Lustral/ sertraline: From the number of questions you have asked - it makes me wonder if you don't trust your psychiatrist. I don't see a problem with increasing sertraline from 50 to 75 mg per day. However, you have been second guessing each recommendation by your psychiatrist. Would discuss your concerns directly with your psychiatrist.
