I was taking 50 mg of Zoloft at first. It worked for a while but then I had to increase the dose. When I got to 200 and was still depressed, the psychiatrist switched me to lexapro. I think 50 or 100 is therapeutic. But you can check with your doctor.

When I was on it a long time ago 150 mg is what helped me and got me out of severe depression

The range for severe anxiety or OCD is 150-200, as marcoleap pointed out.

If a patient reaches 200 and there is no improvement, something else would have to be tried, as that is as high as they take it.
