Hi sorry to jump on the post so far in. I'm just reading various things and looking for some support to help me through.

I was prescribed 50mg on Tuesday but I broke the tablet in half and took 25mg, as I have tried various ones before and they didn't help me. ( terrible side effects ) anyway I'm on day 6 and today I've had awful stomach pain and feel very tired. Haven't moved out of bed all day!! Don't suppose a horrible period and cold have helped!! Everything comes at once!!

Does anyone have any advice on when I should take my dose up to the 50mg??

I would guess anytime- since they gave you 50 as a starting dose, use your own judgement when you feel the tiredness is abating a little perhaps? are they supposed to give stomach pain?

Sertraline can have some bad side effects for the first few weeks IME. Check out the Starting on Sertraline thread.
