Ok so here goes please dont judge

So 3/4 weeks ago i have a trivial memory pop up as a child and caused me to have gad very badly

So 3 weeks ago i started sertraline 50mg then went to 100mg after a week im just about to start my 4th week im wondering if this can have caused ocd?

I had a terrible thought on monday morning about touching my sons genitals hes 5 it made me shake highly anxious and felt very sick i no i wouldnt do it i wash him in the shower etc but would never touch him like this and makes me feel sick when it pops into my head! I no ocd can cause this and i have a doctors appointment tomorrow and cbt thursday just so worried 😩 even thought there thoughts and id never act on them anyone ever had this?

    Hi,

    I was on sertraline but couldn't get on with it,very tired and light headed. GP put me on fluoxetine, seems better for me.

    When we get flashbacks while on meds I don't think we should be judgemental of ourselves never mind others, it's our brains we are medicating after all.

    Mike.

    You could discuss your fears at CBT and explain your fears, I feel it is all to do with Anxiety. So ask the nurse how she feels about the change of medication
