I have been taking Sertraline 50mg for around two years to help my OCD which in turn sometimes causes depression…
My husband was prescribed some Sertraline for depression around a year ago but his are 100mg he doesn’t take them now but the pack is still in date.
I have ran out of my Sertraline 50mg for two days and am worried about withdrawal symptoms as I already feel dizzy. I was wondering if I can take.the 100mg which I brought with me but am unsure as they aren’t my prescription. However, my GP (not long ago) advised me that I could start taking 2 of my 50mgs a day because my OCD had been getting a bit worse.
The pack that my husband has is different from the ones I take (tablets are bigger). In the past I have been given different coloured packets etc of my 50mg.
Please advise if I can take them. If I don’t then I won’t have had Sertraline for 10 days.
