Hi there, I'm new to this site and also to treatment! I have had manageable anxiety and depression in the past but in recent times they have both gotten progressively worse mainly due to physical symptoms of other possible problems. My GP has now prescribed me with 50mg Sertraline tablets and given me the talk on the effects it can have on the first few weeks, and I wondered if anyone here could offer any further advice on how to take it and cope with the first few weeks? I'm due to see the GP again for a review at the end of the month.
One question in particular for anyone who is/has been on Sertaline is what time do/did you normally take the tablet? I'm aiming to use it in the morning, as I've read it could sometimes cause further sleep problems when taken in the evening. I'm quite nervous about starting it, and it doesn't help that my family are quite unsupportive with this whole ordeal, but I knew I couldn't go on without seeking professional help any longer.
I hope your symptoms have been easy on you, always remember it's not your fault mental health problems are difficult and you are not weak or a burden for having them! Stay strong <3
