If, on the other hand, the "hurt" is emotional, then you may want to use reasonable judgement to decide just how life threatening the outcome could potentially be, prior to making an urgent call, but you should still call the office to try to get in to discuss it, assuming you are pretty sure the medicine is causing it... Oh, and occassionally meds in that class can cause some insomnia early in the treatment, but that usually goes away within a wk or two. 100 mg is a very high initial dosage for sertraline, so I do have some concerns about that dosing, regardless, if you didn't build up to it.". ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
