I hope you are keeping well and aren’t plagued too much with your anxiety awareness!!
I came off sertraline 100g cold turkey about 9 weeks ago having found out I was pregnant. I am thrilled to be having another baby but as always my skipped heart beats are putting a downer on everything and in the last week I have noticed an incredible increase in them. I had a doctors appointment on Thursday last week and was assured my blood pressure and heart rate and rhythm was fine and that I wasn’t at risk for some scary heart condition ‘something stenosis’ that is popular in pregnant women which was a relief but still my sleep is now suffering once again. My doctor recommended I go back on anti-anxiety meds but try fluoxetine 20g instead this time as it is safer during pregnancy. Anyone on this medication and felt benefits of this medication? I had some side effects whilst on sertraline mostly vivid dreams and night sweats but otherwise I felt fine - I’m hoping to know what I can expect this time round and also if anyone has experience of being on anti-anxiety meds of this nature or whilst pregnant.
Sending lots of love to you all - and praying we all get a good nights sleep!! x
