Been taking sertraline for three and a half weeks and I feel worse . Can’t stop crying and so anxious. Anyone else feel like this.
Help! : Been taking sertraline for... - Mental Health Sup...
Hi, it definitely took 4 to 6 weeks for me to feel the full effects. Be kind to yourself and know that you will get through this, just takes time. Did your GP give you any lorazepam for anxiety as I found taking a half or even a quarter when I had bad days gave me a lift.
Thank you so much just feel so low x can I ask what dose are you on? X thank you for replying 💗
I'm on 50mg. GP pushed up to 100mg but was too strong for me, find 50 is now working fine. Been almost 2 months and it has made a big difference. We are in such strange times at the moment too so honestly we have to listen to our bodies and let ourselves heal. I did find mediation breathing and trying to stay in the present helps, trying really hard not to over think the future. You will get through this. Xx
Thank you so much for your help x x x keep well x x can I ask if you suffered any side effects I’m still trembly and sick x x
Definitely nausea, worse in the morning. Yes trembly too and hands felt odd esp in the morning and sometimes a fast heartbeat. That's all gone now. I have got diarrhoea which had gone away hoping it will go again soon as think was due to higher dose of 100 mg which didn't suit me. It's horrible waiting to feel well like life is on hold but you will. Xxx
Thank you so much x x just feels like it’s never going to get better x x doesn’t help you can’t get to see your dr either x x
No I know it's really difficult. The good thing is you are listening to your body. Better than trying to ignore how you feel. Just takes time for our bodies to adjust. Are you able to go out for a little walk at all, that helps me. Xxx
Been on it for 4 years and now on 200mg, max dose. Had a recent review when dr asked if it was working. Wasn’t quite sure how to answer that.
Hi I have been taking for 4 years and am now on max dose 200mg. Even that does not feel like enough on some days.
The side effects are vile still nauseous and dizzy four weeks on. Thank you for replying ,
