Dr. Ed Wilfong :

Sertaline (Zoloft) is rarely effective at doses aof less than 75mg, and 150mg is the norm. It is usually started at low dose and incresed every 4-7 days to avaoid side effects of starting medication. Talk to MD about increasing dosage. One of the side effects initially can be increased anxiety so the sooner you can get it to therapeutic level the easier it will be.
