Anyone on sertraline? Views on it?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I'm under the crisis team now beacuse Iv been a emotional wreck I see a doctor today I'm on mirtizazpine but it's made me put on so much weight , the doctor I seen has said just stop taking them and start taking certraline 50mg every morning I'm scared. Will I be ok? Is this antidepessant good? I hope it don't make me put on more weight than the mirtazapine did?

    I've been on both Sertraline and Mirtazapine. As you said I found I piled on the pounds with Mirtazapine. I'm now on Paroxatine / Seroxat and have found this is working for me.and I haven't put on weight.
