I googled this:

Nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, loss of appetite, increased sweating, diarrhea, upset stomach, or trouble sleeping may occur.

Thank you for replying I have most of these side effects

that's not good, then you should talk to your doctor, because it's their job to make sure the benefits of a prescribed med. out weigh the side effects.

The benefits will outweigh the side effects..it just takes 4-6 weeks for the side effects to go away and the med to start working.

My side effects last until the 5 week and then they went away and I started feeling great.

Use the search feature and type in “sertraline” and you’ll fine a ton of posts on it here. There is some good information in all the previous threads that’s will give you information.

I used to be on sertraline, Had very bad side affects now on 10mg citalopram and feel fine, I must add i was ok before i took these tabs, Mine are for chemical imbalance. Not for a bout of seriouse depression. These tablets take a few weeks to get people feeling better. Consult you docter Gerrerd.
