Please excuse me if this is in the wrong forum. I'm new here.
For 6 years, I have been on Zoloft and have been virtually symptom free. Over the last two weeks, however, the depression has suddenly returned with a vengeance. I'm currently unemployed and uninsured. I'm really REALLY struggling with this sudden recurrence. It's just like it was 6 years ago: constant sadness, difficulty concentrating, problems sleeping, etc.
While I know this is not the recommended thing to do, I'm wondering if any of you have ever temporarily upped your medication, at least until you could get to a doctor? I'm considering taking an extra 50 mg. a day just to keep me going until I can find some help.
Thanks much for your input.
