6 weeks in and thought I was through the worst, have had some good days so all was looking good. Feels like I am back to square one today, wake in a cold sweat, stomach churning and as soon as I eat I need the loo in a hurry. Feeling sorry for myself and anxious because I thought I was through the worst of this....... No appetite at all again...... Need to keep going week 7 has to be better....

    Sometimes getting 'anxious' & expecting the side effects to return can be the reason why you feel like you have 'stepped' back with your recovery.

    I know it's not easy but try not to expect to feel recovered everyday, we all have blip days but look at tomorrow as another day, if you feel the same then fine if you feel better then fine too.

    This depression, anxiety, panic, OCD thing is no fun but try to keep positive. Keep talking on here as i've learned it really helps

      Thankyou, it just came as a shock waking in a cold sweat again with symptom. I have MS as well and am very stiff and sore in the mornings anyway but the joy of these symptoms on top is no fun. I know it will pass through the day and anxiety does not help but a easy day would be nice.

      I did give up on sertraline after 10 days and felt great for a few weeks but it came back so I am determined to keep going with fluoxetine. It's hard work with appetite and bowel but as you say better days ahead......
