I used to find Sertraline ok. I started on 50mg from what I remember, then upto 100mg when they found it wasn't quite working as well as my Mirtazapine had been. They tried to up it to 150mg when I was having a really hard time, but that's where problems occured. I am very sensetive to high prolactin levels and galactorrhea, due to my prolacting levels flying up way above where they should be the Sertraline was stopped. We've since found out that I have the same problem with a lot of meds that cause this, including antisickness meds. I would say that it's a pretty rare occurance for this to happen though. Other than that Sertraline was working well for me, it's just so much was going on in my life that felt out of my control that I needed the dose increase.
I personally find meds that makes me sleepy work better for me, Sertraline was a real energy booster though and I felt quite energetic and motivated while on it.
Hope this helps
