Just want to share my experiences.
I started on here quite a long time ago after taking citalopram for the first time.
It took me almost 10 years to see somebody about my problems which was very hard for me.
I started on just 20 mg for around 6 months. They didnt affect me at all apart from a few side affects. After visiting my gp again i was told to keep on with them for another 6 months. I did and still no affect. After this i gave up trying and left my problems as it was and thought thats just it. I got worse again as time went on amd it was having a massive affect on me and my life. After a few months i went back to my gp and also got in touch with my local iapt team. They were fantastic and referred me to my gp again for different medication. This time i was put on 150mg of sertraline. I can honestly say i noticed after around a month that they was working and i could finally feel a positive change in myself.
My journey has been very difficult at times but i have stuck by it and finally i am feeling a lot better.
It may seem at times like it will never get better but let me say it DOES get better and it WILL. Its not easy at all but to all those struggling i wish you all well and to stick by it.
