Medication Eval: Many psychiatrists are happy to give general practitioners a consultation with their patient who is not stable on one anti-depressant. Perhaps this could be an option for you. In the U.S. Many have added a drug named Abilify (aripiprazole) to other anti-depressants to boost their effectiveness. Hope this helps. ...Read more

See your doctor: It sounds like you need to be back on the zoloft (sertraline). We do not usually recommend that people stay on ativan long term. It is usually used initially to help people calm down then tapered off as the zoloft (sertraline) or other medication begins to work. We cannot prescribe psychiatric medications on healthtap so see your doctor. Exercise and avoiding alcohol and stimulants will help also. ...Read more

I'm now on 200 mg Zoloft daily & 300mg wellbutrin (bupropion) as prescribed by my psychatrist. But now an orthopedic surgeon prescribed me deanxit. Safe combo??

Careful: Deanxit is banned in the U.S. There are many potential side effects combining these three medications. My interaction checker will not allow me to use medications not allowed in the U.S. Discuss this potential medication mix with your psychiatrist. ...Read more

I'm taking 200 mg of Zoloft (sertraline) can up it to 300 or 400 safely without worry?

Careful follow-up: Normally, zoloft (sertraline) is used to a limit of 200mg/day. However, people with ocd who have not responded to this level may need higher doses than this. With close follow-up with your doctor, high doses of zoloft (sertraline) (from 250-400mg) have been used safely. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16426083 in this study, symptom relief in the higher dose group was greater than in the 200mg/day group. ...Read more

I take 200 mg of Zoloft (sertraline) daily for chronic anxiety. I believe I may have accidentally taken double that (400 mg) today. Dangers?

200 MG q.d. is a: high dose and twice that is higher than I've ever heard. I'd call poison control or 911 just to quickly check in with the experts. If you are near an ER, that would do, but I'd call someone STAT just to lower your anxiety even more. What are your symptoms after taking double the dose? How long ago did you take it? ...Read more

Can you tell me what to do if i stopped taking 200 mg of Zoloft (sertraline) i'm now on amitriptyline 50mg . Will i get a bad withdrawal ?

Hard to say: Amitriptilyn is fairly anticholinergic. It might give you a dry mouth, elevated heart rate, blurred vision when reading especially with a dose large enough to replace the 200 mg of zoloft (sertraline). Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

I've been taking 200mg Zoloft (sertraline) for 2 yrs now. also welbutrin, BP meds & ritalin. accidentally took 200 mg more zoloft-with night meds. about 7 hrs ap ?

No danger: While the single excessive dose of Zoloft (sertraline) is not likely to cause you any danger, it is an indication that you need a better system for taking and storing your medications. I suggest a medicine "stick" available at most pharmacies to store your individual days supply of medication. Some have separate compartments for morning and evening doses. ...Read more
