hi, I come onto this site a few days ago. I've been dealing with anxiety and low mood since August and have tried natural remedies but was unsuccessful. My dr prescribed me sertaline which I was reluctant to take even though I'd been on it before a few years ago, my anxiety is a little different this time. I had panic attacks and found it difficult being in crowded places but this time I'm not as bad in crowded places and I haven't had many panic attacks either but it's still the worse. I have 2 children so still need to get up and sort them out plus I'm self employed so have to go to work otherwise no pay. I'd love to be able to stay in bed all day until I felt better but that's not going to happen. I'm married but recently been going through some difficulties and not sure if we will stay together which makes my anxiety even worse. We haven't really spoken and today he packed his things and went down south (that's where he works and stays) said he was miserable and needed to get away. So I'm left on my own with my 2 kids on New Year's Eve.
Started taking sertaline on Monday so been on it 6 days and it's heighten my anxiety which is not great. I'm on 25mg as I told the dr I wanted to start slow but she told me to go Upto 50mg within a week so I'm taking 50mg tomorrow I'm just hoping that my side effects don't get any worse as I'm on my own now.
Sorry for going on just needed to get it off my chest and if anyone wants to message me feel free
