Yes, you could probably do that if the pill can split that way and make even quarters. They'd be pretty small. Splitting a pill is easier. But you can try it. Zoloft is pretty tolerable it appears. And for many people it takes a higher dosage to be effective. I'd be surprised if 5o mg is where you end up as 100 mg is a more common dose. But time will tell with that. I'm so glad you are being treated. Did you see the psychiatrist? Have you started taking it yet? How are you feeling? Let me know how things go!
I'm the same way when it comes to pills/medicine etc. I was taking busiprone and started with half a pill at a time to limit the potential for side effects, however, your doctor should be able to let you know if you can start slowly. Best of luck!
Please don't look at my posts, meds work differently for everyone.
Mine are negative for this med.
Hope it works out for you. Im open about it if you want to ask me something.
Yes, you can. My Sertraline is in capsule form so i can't but by the sounds of it yours is in a pill/chalk form so your OK. If their are any side effects you'll probably notice in a week or 2. SSRI's usually take about 2 weeks to start having an effect and once they do don't ever stop cold turkey. But i can say Sertraline is pretty good and 25mg may sound like alot, but some people take 100mg and that seems like over kill because some other SSRI's like Paxil are taken in smaller doses to have the same effect. But my Dr says Sertraline is a much milder, so dont be worried about 25mg i was taking 75mg. Also just a personal opinion if Sertraline doesn't work and a Dr ever tries to give you Paxil don't take it, ask for something else because it can be pretty bad to get off of and side effects i noticed more on it. But everyone's different, good luck.
This is something i have always done myself as i cant bare side effects (especially the anxiety and jittery feeling) i just done it myself nobody told me too so the facts your doctor said that is so good to hear. Do a quarter of your pill for a week then half for a week then 3 quarters for a week until your onto a full one thats how i do it and worked for me no side effects and after 10 years on esa suffering trying this method. Within 6 months im back driving have a job after 10 years my own apartment I honestly don’t recognise myself but the new me is Thanks to sertraline hope this helps ! x
