sorry i'm new here and pressed enter by mistake

My son, "S", is 7 and is on zoloft for anxiety. 12.5 mg a day. His grandmother just died and his father made him go to the gravesite. I was not allowed to attend. My son's visitation with his father was changed drastically after a neglect case was filed by acs and after he tested positive for cocaine.

The symptoms S experienced before starting zoloft have re-emerged and his psychiatrist said that this is normal and he is experiencing grief. He did not want to raise the prescription to 25 mg. a day. These symptoms are impacting on S's life again. I know that this is situational but I don't like to see him suffer. Should I bring this up with the psychaitrist again.

My son is teary at the drop of a hat and his aggressive tendencies have come back.

Thank you

Bring it up again. Sometimes periods of greater stress require temporary increases in dosage. Also, at times the effects of a certain dosage can wane requiring a higher dose.
