Being on sertraline years ago my doctor upped me from 50mg to 100mg I remember feeling a bit sickly but nothing too bad but once I got used to the 100mg I had a good few years feeling happy and being more in control of my anxiety. Good luck and hope it works for you like it did for me

Hi amanda appreciated for your response, docs said i got them for only a month then we will see cause they put me on counciling sessions therapist, which should helps

But i have only 6 sessions every week and i dont think thats enough, after side effects like shakes shivers thoughts and headaches i am left with nightmares

Worst comes worst i cannot control that at work especially breathing its so hard

Therapist told me to imagine a colour but its not that easy

When i experience panic attack my stomach is tight , short breath, cant eat whole day so im forcing myself

This is so scaryyyy i so dont want that😔


Hey! I’m on the exact same dose and meds as you! Message me if you ever need advice or anything been on these for a year now things are going good and trust me after a month or too you are so used to takin them you don’t even think of the side effects I was severely depressed and had severe anxiety before taking these but they put me back on track and I also had 6 lessons like you! I don’t know if you had the same but I had cbt it didn’t end up doing much for me but everyone is Different xx
