I've been trying to cut down and eventually give up the sterlaline I was prescribed for anxiety.
I hate taking it and know the anxiety is just part of the overall problem.
I've just had an endo appointment and extensive blood tests so am waiting on the outcome of that. My ideal end goal is to try ndt but I think I've got some hope!
Anyway for the last 3\4 weeks I've been halving the tablet and taking half.
A few days ago I started taking one 5 HTP tablet as well.
I've taken these before years ago and they definitely helped with sleep and anxiety and I thought if I could switch it would be good.
The last 2 nights have been disturbed with cold sweats where I'm literally sweating and shivering at the same time. I also have a horrible adrenaline rush feeling which is really unpleasant.
Do you think its the 5 HTP or the reducing the sertralune that's the cause?
5HTP has something to do with serotonin I think so maybe its not a good combination with the sertaline?
