Hi everyone, as i've been reading peoples different experiences on sertraline or another antideppressant i've rarely come by one that I can fully relate to and the main reason for that is because i'm a 19 year old male. My story begins about a year ago when I dropped out of school as I had little motivation to do much and didn't care where I ended up in life which was partly due to my mothers ill health and brothers alcoholism. A couple of months after this i was diagnosed with depression and put on citalopram. I returned to school in september to resit the year and complete the course. In december 2015 I decided to come off of citalopram as i found they made me anxious and felt like a zombie whilst taking them. After this I was perscribed sertraline in January 2016. The first 2 - 3 weeks where hell and I wasn't able to go to school as they hightened my anxiety and gave me insomnia as well as made me feel detatched and 'numb'. I've told the school my situation and i still haven't made it back in due to feeling anxious all the time. I'm wondering what other people made of sertraline and do people advise increasing the dose as at the minute i'm only on 50mg and its been a little over 4 weeks.
