Depending on how bad I feel one night it was six o’clock just couldn’t wait to get out of the misery, it’s only time I’m happy when I’m asleep mainly it’s about 9 to 10 though xx

Hi speak to your gp i to was put on this medication and it was pure hell it didnt agree with me one bit and it never got better for me so i changed to another tablet never again

How long was you on it for please x

Not long i tried to stick it out for 4-6weeks but no wasnt settling

Ok

They put me on ZOLOFT supposedly for Life. Immediately started monstrously craving carbohydrates like potatoes .... rice. Gained almost 25 lbs in the first month. Didn't feel all that well either.

Was headed for Diabetes and more problems.

Asked the doctor what's up with that .... thought this drug was supposed to help me. Why am I gaining weight and craving carbs? He just sat there mute with no answers.

That was IT for me. I threw them in the trash. Resolved my severe case of GAD with calming teas, supplements, food and drink ...... reading about anxiety ..... and other natural modalities.

It worked! Been in remission for years. Good Luck to you . . . . .

Thanks love xx

Hi might not be the case but where I’m at there’s a bug going around Ive been in bed since Thursday too ,, shaking like mad chills to going hot ,, body aches especially arms and legs , really tired just couldn’t get out of bed then my dad was like it weekend now my daughter ,, hope your feeling better now and was just a bug if not hope your symptoms subside real soon youve got this , 😊 x

Just read down,, if it is medication it seems awful to deal with so do what you think is best for you I’m sure there’s an alternative that suits you ,,, good luck 🤞 x

To give it more time they are saying love xx

Aw okay hopefully it does ease for you real soon , don’t know if you like chamomile tea I don’t know if it works or it’s just me telling my brain it calms me down ,, but you take it easy and rest as much as you need to and if you can go for a nice walk to clear your head a bit even in your garden just a bit of fresh air ,,wishing you the best , take good care it will be all over soon 🤞 ,, keep us updated always good to get it off ya chest 🙂 x

Thanks love you take care too xxx
