Hi . My very first questions I posted on hear was about sertraline 50mg and its side effects . I had a really bad experience with side effects on these and that completly put me off taking medication at all.
I have been waiting for CBT for 4 months n decided to just manage on my own without medication until my apt came through . Well 1 month ago I hit a all time low n my anxiety started really taking control of me so after seeing my GP she has put me on fluoxitine 20mg and they are really started to help. Yes I did feel anxious the first 4 days ( but no worse than one of my bad days anyway ) but nothing as horrific as the side effects first time.
I was always against medication and although I still dnt think it is a cure for anxiety it doesn't solve the root cause but It can certainly help minimise the symptoms of it in the short term while you do solve it .
