  • Personally I would be wary when it comes to sleeping pills, you will never wake up and that is no good

    You say you suffer from anxiety, it is important that you discuss all with your GP so make a list of things that are bothering you.

    If you need support we are here

    Good Luck

  • Going on holiday Saturday she said about swapping meds from sertraline 100mg to some other one beginning with m something like matazipram she said it would help my sleep but she said the cross over would or could have side effects so she said give it a bit longer for the sertraline so see how I am after holiday cheers

  • I used to get stressed and anxious before a term started when I was a teacher. I had no usual stress problems. All my teacher friends were the same. Before going down the route of more pills maybe it's time to look at trying to get through that first day syndrome. Ask if your first day back could be just the afternoon to ease you in gently and reduce the anxiety.
