I'm on zoloft 50mg for about two weeks now..How long did it take you to start feeling it was working? I'm a mess..With anxiety, worry, fears and depression..My doctor told me if 50mg doesn't work she would up it to 100mg..What is a reasonable time to judge if it's working for me? I'm breastfeeding my 2 month old ds..This medication is safe and recommend while breastfeeding..So, changing medication may not be safe while breastfeeding

I agree. some docs even say 6 weeks, but if your symptoms get worse, tell your doc asap.

Quoting LovingmyLeah:

it takes 2-4 wks. it depends on your body.

I am also on 50mg of Zoloft. Honestly I felt it work right away. My anxiety and feelings of loneliness went away. After about one week of taking it I felt much more relaxed and happier. I spoke to my doctor about going off of it already and he said if I felt ready that I could stop once I finished what I had. I havent taken a pill in 3-4 days! I feel great. Hang in there. It will start working and soon you'll feel like your self again. There is a light at the end if the tunnel :) hugs!
