I have just started taking 50mg Sertraline starting today and I just wanted to know if anyone had any advice on what I'm going to feel, its the first anti-depressant I've ever taken.
I have suffered with panic attacks from October-January with terrible nausea and weight loss, I have come far since then, now being able to do my normal daily tasks without feeling scared, however the underlying anxiety is still there and the queasy feeling comes back whenever I feel worried.
I have signed up with iTalk, the NHS anxiety and depression service also.
I originally went to the doctor for advice on what other tests I can have done for my stomach (already had thyroid blood tests and gastroscopy) but she said it doesn't sound like a physical stomach or bowel issue, it sounds like anxiety as all my tests have come back clear.
Any advice on anti-depressants (Sertraline especially) would be great as in a few weeks I have to get my first flight (only 1 hour) since all this panic has happened and I don't want the medication to make me feel really anxious and sick.
