"Hi, I’ve recently upped my dose of sertraline from

Patient: “Hi, I’ve recently upped my dose of sertraline from 150mg to 200mg for ocd. I’m on day 13 and every day I am getting worse, my anxiety is a lot higher and I am feeling very low. Is it possible 200mg is too high? Should I decrease my dose back down as I was feeling much better on 150mg
