Would side effects be present with increasing Zoloft dosage of 25 to 50mg? Although no bad side effects when taking 25mg, but many with 50mg.

That said - if you have only taken 3 half pills and if the pill was the smallest pill size, then you are at a good stopping point already. You've taken a very small dose for not very long and are unlikely to have trouble stopping. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
