...stomach flu? Or any illness for that matter? It seems any time I get sick where I'm out of commission for a couple days, by the time I feel better I also start feeling my OCD and anxiety symptoms kicking in worse. I take 25 mgs of Zoloft daily. I used to take 100 but weaned myself down last year over many months to 25 with the help of my doctor. I'm starting to wonder if I should be taking a higher dose again. 25 keeps me in check for the most part but sometimes I feel the symptoms returning more. Feeling worse after illness is annoying. Has anyone else ever had that happen?

PS I posted this in one other topic thread but this one seems to be hoppin! ;)
