Hi! I'm really just reaching out for some encouragement. This is the third time in 3 years I've tried to stop taking sertraline as I felt like I was ok, and feeling pretty good only to be greatly disappointed. First few months are always great, it always hits me that third month. First comes the tears, crying about silly things, the irritability, and than BAM! the panic attacks hit. I really wanted to get off, I so thought I was good. I feel like a failure and now have to go through those awful first weeks of restarting the meds. I don't see myself ever getting off. I've come to the realization that this a chronic condition for me. Are there any other long term sertraline users out there? Does it work for that long even? I need to hear some positive things bc I can't keep doing this to myself. I need reassurance that staying on sertraline forever is not a bad thing. Thanks for listening to me ramble...first day back and I'm sure we all know where my head space is at
