  • Odd Question...

    This may be an odd question. But has anyone who has ever taken their Zoloft late felt off that whole day? I took mine a couple hours late yesterday and felt like crap the rest of the day. I felt shaky and my anxiety was really high. Probably was just me but figured I’d ask on here. Thanks!!

  • Sertraline Withdrawal .. Does it go away?

    Hi. I just wondered if anyone had been through sertraline withdrawal and got better? I look on the internet and can't find anything positive about ssri withdrawal, particularly sertraline.

    This is my first time on meds but the third time in 4 years that I've been assailed by Anxiety and Low Mood. It's health related anxiety but once it kicks in, it sort of becomes self-feeding, because all I'm anxious about is having the anxiety. Really difficult to shake, which is why I went...
