4weeks on sertraline. anxiety hell

Posted , 2 users are following.

I changed from fluoxetine to sertraline 4weeks ago I was in a total mess after a flu increase I was so agitated I was crazy. I was doing better soon as that started leaving my body but now at 4weeks on sertraline my anxiety is back, can't sleep for it or eat. Its awful it coming back after been OK ish. I don't understand that at the time it should get better iv gone bad again. Its been 3days like this now seems more then a blip. Is it just as the drug settles in now its in my body or has it stopped working for me. Please advise I'm bad again and I can't take it x

      I can tell u that the first two weeks is hard then it gets better iv had this a few times. I'm puzzled to why I get better week 2-3 1/2 then boom its back again. I'm hoping it will pass but at same time I don't know if to increase. I know 4weeks is still early days but I'm so anxious and low again crying all the time. I hope after week to ul be a lot better smile xx
