Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician and I would like to help you. I’m so sorry to hear about what you’re going through. Your Zoloft at 50mg is the lowest starting dose and can definitely be increased to alleviate your symptoms. How long have you been taking it?

Thank you for that information. You should definitely talk with your doctor about increasing your dose. You can go up as high as 200mg a day which would probably help your depression and anxiety symptoms a lot more. Can I help with any other questions?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
