    Well done one done so u have got over the biggest hurdle. As someone else said just take one day at a time otherwise u could get overwhelmed. Just remember u did it today and u will do it again..and again.  The tiredness will partly be after the tension u had built up just worrying about going back.  I always find that after I've been really's like the tension leaving ur body or something.  The sweats are absolutely dreadful (for me anyway)...main reason I'm trying to come off them now. Best wishes

    Kevin, my doc said if I experienced lock jaw I should return to see him ASAP.

      Hi David..that's interesting ..I remember shortly after I started on them getting really strange worrying feeling in my jaw & could only open my mouth so far & no further.  This happened a couple of times and thankfully never happened again. I had actually forgotten about it. But I didn't know then that it had anything to do with the sertraline & it was never mentioned to me as being a side effect. It was quite frightening at the time
