Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, I am in my fifth week on Setraline after been off antidepressents for 3 months and although the drug has lifted my mood a bit. My anxiety is very high and getting regular panic attacks.

I am taking 75mg pregabalin with this also at night

    Are you eating and drinking properly?

    Sertraline isn't a cure for panic attacks it's a way of coping. You need to figure out your triggers and why it's happening.

      Think Of it like this, if you broke your leg you wouldn't use painkillers alone to rehabilitate your muscles. You'd do physiotherapy and use painkillers. Mental health is similar. You use medication to make it easier, but you will still need to work on your mental health. You need to learn to look at your thoughts differently.

      There's a few good books out there, check your local library or see your GP.
