Hi, I am brand new to anything like this, but really need some advice and support I will start from the beginning!
When I had my daughter who is now 1, I had this awful belief that I was going to die, I went to A and E frequently and continued to telephone the Drs.
Eventually this subsided and then last Christmas my husband became poorly with a chest infection, which I truly believed was lung cancer. It consumed my whole Christmas which needless to say was miserable. I could go on forever but I'm sure you get the picture, I took my eldest daughter to the Drs when she complained of headaches because I thought she had a brain tumour and so on......
About 2 months ago I went to the Dr and explained all this to her. She prescribed me 50 mg of Sertraline which Was eventually increased up to now 150mg. I went on holiday in the half term and ran out (stupidly) and hadn't taken them for 6 days, I was prescribed some more last Thursday but ever since I have not had my period I am about 8/9 days late, I feel very sick and am so tired! I phoned the pharmacy on Saturday because I was beside myself with worry that I have cervical cancer or some thing awful like that. The pharmacy said it would take a few days for things to get back to normal but i cannot stop worrying! i feel so nervous all day long. I am normally regular with my periods although I do remember last month being a few days late. Please note I am not pregnant!!!
has anybody else had this problem with Sertraline??Or is it just because I came off it cold turkey??? Any advise would be so much appreciated!! Thankyou!! Xx
