Anxiety, sertralin

Hi. my psychiatrist went away, guess he went for his pension. He gave me sertralin but before he went on his pensions he unfortunately gave me the dose that i had at the beginnig. which was 50g tablets (2 times a day) do anyone of you know what i should do with the new person? i'm still trying to figure one out, i was at 200mg (2 per day). Some tips would be appreciated.He was great and treated most of my OCD (and panic attack).
I don't really wanna get stuck with someone who wants to talk every week. i don't have that economy. any tips?

It seems odd a retiring doctor would not have referred you to someone else, but I don’t have any tips other than looking around for a new doctor and having a discussion with them. Explain to them what it is you think you need Vik?

I’m with Dee. Most Therapist/psychiatrist will give a consult, at low cost at least in US, and you can have that interview. The fit should be good on both sides.

If you can reach your old Dr (pun intended🤓, can you ask him based on his experience with you, who in your area would be a good fit?

Yep, I don't know how the healthcare system works in Sweden but if you're insured is there any chance your provider would be able to help with referring you to a new doctor?

Still a student.. but if i can get a psychiatrist who is in the swedish system where there is a maximum of 1150kr (something like 110 euro) per 12 month period. The one he proposed was one of those. I'm really lucky i got you guys (guys as in guys, women included).
That and a cheap healtcare.
The meds are about 100kr (10) euro each.

Wanted to give an update. got my local health care center the papers they needed. since the one i had in gothenburg was a private clinic. mailed them that i needed the papers, what i got in form of medication from them, got it back with all the information. gave it to my local health care center. got 100mg sertralin but only 1 a day. contacted so i've gotten 2x100 mg a day. which is what i had most of the time. in the end (he was going for a pension) so i got the old recipe of 2x50mg. which is understandable because i believe he was already leaving at that point and made a misstake. So now i've gotten 2x100mg for each day. which is what i needed. glad that they fixed it so fast. Happy that my local health care center fixed it so fast. and it doesn't really cost me anything every month. like 10 dollars at the most.

Zoloft did nothing for me. High Doses of Paxil has been the only SSRI thats helped. Everybodys different. When I was just in jail for about 100 days I was on Zoloft 150 mg/morning for 3 months. Did nothing. You have to experiment and it sucks and takes time with different meds.
