I have suffered from clinical depression and anxiety for many years. Sertraline was prescribed for me---50mg which did nothing for my condition; then 100mg which helped for a few years; then 150mg which I'm taking now. The thing is I'm still depressed and weepy especially in the mornings. My list of side effects is quite long: nightmares, lightheadedness, dry mouth, tiredness and memory loss.
I have an appointment to see my doctor tomorrow but I can't imagine him being able to do anything new/different to help me. I feel sad and think I am still grieving for those loved ones who made life good for me. I feel as if I'm out on a limb with no-one to help me, no-one to be the strong one on whom I can rely. I feel vulnerable, like a child without a mother but I'm no child.
