Increased medication

Help, j St some reassurance needed really.

I've been on 50mg Sertraline since Christmas and have been getting on okay. I have a holiday coming up and worry, low feelings and generally stressed out has kicked in.

My doctor suggested I doubled up the sertraline to 100mg which I did but found it was way too much to handle. In have 2 young children to look after which with a heavy head is not a good combination, so I decided to see how it goes on 50mg, try and beat it myself!

I was doing okay until Thursday when I had a "wobbly" day so I said to my doctor about going up gradually to 75mg. Its only the second day and I'm feeling rubbish. Its not even a huge increase but needless to say the holidays coming up and I want to feel better.

How long will the side effects of nausea, spaced out feelings and generally crapyness last? Also anything I can have to help eliviate the rubbishness?

Any help or suggestions will be appreciated!
