Upping Sertraline dose

So this spiral I hit is only getting worse so think it's time to pop back to my go and get my meds sorted. Reluctantly for some reason.
Been on 50mg since November. Just wanting to ask really if the side effects come winding back when you go through a dose change? I suffered terribly for a good couple of months whilst my body was getting used to the Sertraline and really don't want/can't afford to go through that again.

Currently coming to you from under a blanket on the sofa :-(

Hey :hug1:

All meds react differently depending on the person so I can only described my experience. When I went from 50 to 100 I had the same side effects from when I first got put on them but that was only for a couple of days.
