Hi everyone, this is my 1st post & i'd thought i'd give it ago for some advice. I've been suffering for anxiety from when I was a young teen, but over the last couple of years it's gotten severely worse. This past week I've barely been able to get out of bed, I've had the typical symptoms plus a knot of severe dread in my stomach that I can't get rid of & seems to be the worse symptom of them all. I went to my GP yesterday who prescribed 50mg of Sertraline, which now after reading what seems like 1000's of terrible reviews, I'm absolutely petrified of taking it (I know this a very ironic part of anxiety). I have a little girl & I can't afford to feel any worse than I do, as I already feel guilty about her being around me when I have this horrible illness & I all I want to do is be in bed for the rest of my life & never speak to anyone ever again.....anyway, I'm just wondering if anyone has had no side effects or just some & it does actually work for anxiety?
Thank you in advance
