Can Sertraline cause a Rash

Posted , 5 users are following.


Iv Been on sertraline 25mg for just over 5 weeks.

But for the last week or so iv started with a rash in my armpits.

Could it be the tablets?? And will it go like the other symptoms iv had

on and off over the past 5 weeks

Anyone else had a rash with them

    It has nothing to do with the Med. Check you reorder any. Our minds get paranoid when we take this medication. When the meds kick in you'll be fine. It takes time.

    I thought ok my need and at 5 weeks I thought I was better. Then I gave it 6 months and realize how awesome my feel song were with the added time. Now 1.5 years later, I'm great and will stay on it forever. It's been a life saver.

      Thank you from the reply.

      Iv never had a skin problem that's why I was asking.

      Just seems that since starting this iv started with a rash.

      I feel alot calmer than I did so obviuosly it's doing its job.

      Glad it's working for you too.

    Hi Julie, it's hard to say really. My Sertraline information leaflet says to consult a doctor if you develop any rashes so at the very least it's worth calling into your chemist to have a chat about it but worth speaking to your doc if it's something unusual for you.
