The doctor increased my medication dose today. I’m on sertraline, I was previously on 100mg daily and now that’s up to 150mg.
I don’t know how I feel about it. I think I do need more, but I’m just worried that being on more will have some kind of adverse affect on me. I’m not sure what I’m fearing will happen. My doctor said it won’t harm me or my baby (I’m breastfeeding), and that the benefits outweigh the risks. So why am I so worried? Maybe it’s just my anxiety getting to me. I’m so grateful for this medication; I know a lot of people don’t like the idea of pills to fight mental illness like this, but I’m so thankful for them because I know I’d be so much worse off without them.
Change just makes me nervous I guess.
