I am four days in to taking my new medication one of which is sertraline. I take 50mg in the morning as directed. This is a start off dose as I go up to 100mg on Monday. However I am finding I am extreamly spaced out, disorientated and feeling almost manic by mid morning. I feel like I talk really fast about nothing, lose my thoughts midsentence and can't keep still, even though I am telling myself to stop! My colleagues just think I have had too much sugar or something but it's leaving me exhausted by teatime and I just want to call it a day and go to bed. The spaced out fog seems to come and go all day.
I know I should just ride it out for a bit longer as the side effects I had with my last tablets subsided after a few weeks but I just want to feel better not feel like this on top of everything else.
Has anyone else felt like this when taking sertraline?
