Day 2 sertraline help!

Posted , 3 users are following.

So this is day 2 I'm ment to be taking my 2nd day 50mg of sertraline I've woken up feeling horrible and weird, does anybody else get a weak left arm?? It's really creaking me out thinking I'm having a stroke! ALSO has anybody got any positive stories on sertaline as I'm undecided weather to carry on taking them or not 😥

    Hi Victoria

    Your weak left arm could be an anxiety symptom or a side effect of the drugTaking a AD for 2 days is not going to help you it takes 4 to 6 weeks from then to kick in.

    Everyone reacts differently to medication.

    I take 150mg of sertraline they do nothing for me Ive been on them 6 weeks now,my side effects were headache weak limbs and blurred vision.

    You have to decide if you want to take a AD because most of them will have side effects.

    AD's are important to me as I have severe depression I dont think they do much for anxiety.

    Stay Strongcheesygrin
