I thought they were alryt these ones I had to switch from sertraline at the start cuzI had the same if u still feel u need the antidepressant just switch to another as some don't agree with you ... I went off mum cuz I cudnt be bothered to take them everyday and when I had a wee drink the anxiety was really bad after ...  really they don't take anxiety away they just out serotonin  In ur head to give u happy vibesto help u deal with anxiety so really u can just go out more go to a new class or excercise which I really need to do .. ul find the anxiety slowly gets better but learning to deal with it and techniques really
