Can you become used to the AD dosage?

...and need more? And then in 6 months time a higher dosage again?

The reason I'm asking is because I've been on 50mg of Sertraline since December. I've felt really good on it, really positive and happy. But the last 2 weeks this overwhelming sense of apathy is sinking in and it's affecting my work and my physical health. This is one of my triggers when I know I'm not well.

Im also hypothyroid to make matters worse.

Yes I think you can need to increase it over time (you can also sometimes lower it again).

A friend at work has increased her dose during times when it's got worse again, then reduced it (all slowly of course). It all depends on your own body.

Talk to your GP - it might be that you need a higher dose or switch to a similar pill.

flowers hope things pick up for you soon.
