Anxiety Medication

Posted , 3 users are following.

Update: Been on Sertraline for a few weeks now. It calmed me allot and i haven't felt at all anxious which has been nice. Side affects only lasted 2 days and i coped perfectly fine while my husband was away. I don't want to stay on them though because i feel emotionally numb, like i don't really care about anything and that doesn't sit right with me. It's lowered my sex drive considerably and i find i tend to zone out occasionally. I like that it has helped my anxiety but i feel quite detached.

    I recognize those side effects. Some people like to care less about things than they're accustomed to. But others don't like it at all. I think you should talk to whatever doctor prescribed the medication and tell him what you've said here.
