I five years ago I suffered from anxiety which lead to a nervous breakdown. I was out in 50mg or Sertraline and got through it. I feel it made me a much stronger person and I did so much in my life after it that I wouldn’t of done before.
I recently started a new job which was going well, and two weeks ago the new job got quite stressful which I knew could happen as it is the nature of the job. However it seemed to have brought back the anxiety symptoms. I battled it out and did another two shifts last week and I couldn’t bare it, when I got home I completely broke down to where I was five years ago. I’ve handed my notice in as I realise the nature of the job is not for me.
I’ve been to the doctors and he wants me to up my sertraline to 100mg, I rejected this at the time as I felt like I don’t want to let it beat me, but I realise I was wrong and last night upped it too 100mg.
I’m due back to work as casual next week, does anyone know how long the upped dose will take to work?
I can’t bear feeling like this, and feel so bad as there is people out there facing serious health conditions.
