Back on Sertraline

Posted , 10 users are following.

Hi everyone,

I’m really disappointed to be writing this as I have previously written two posts, one about my journey with Sertraline and how I eventually got back to my happy self and the second about how I successfully came off Sertraline 9 months ago. Unfortunately I have had to come back onto Sertraline after the anxiety returned and I found myself feeling tearful through the day. 

I have been through the hell of the first few weeks before so have not been in constant panic this time as I know what is going on in terms of side effects etc. However I am on day 17 (8 days on 25mg and 9 days on 50mg) and the past two days I just can’t stop crying. 

I don’t know if this is a side effect to the tablets messing with my emotions or if it’s just how devastated I am to be in this position again. I am off work now for 3 weeks and I am absolutely gutted. 

I suppose I am just looking for some support today. Did anyone else feel like crying constantly? 

Thank you

    I also tried prozac from last march to july. It wasnt for me. Big insomnia, felt totally drugged and anxious.
