Im experiencing fuzzy/cotton wool headaches where I feel all disconnected and can't think straight. I take Sertraline....could this be a side effect?

    i've never been put on sertraline, so i dont know its side effects. i am just wondering, have you read the bottle it came in? sometimes there are warning little stickers stuck onto the bottle. if there are no stickers at all? well, that would be strange. has your doctor explained about side effects while he prescribed this for you? if he hasn't, then you might wanna call the pharmacist who filled your bottle. now that person should know all about it. i dont think you should be scared cause almost all meds can make your head feel weird. is there any pain, real discomfort? call the doctor or pharmacist, just to rule out anything serious. sooner than later....okay?

      Yeah I have good days and bad but when its a bad day I get these symptoms.

      Ive had depression 17 years anxiety started in December but with a med change and therapy I think Im seeing the light at the end of the tunnel

      The antibiotics could be causing these symptoms as well

      Stay Strongrolleyes

      Hi Iris

      Ive been on 200mg for about 3 months now it started off at 25mg then went up month by month to 200mg.

      I have had depression 17 years anxierty only started in December the mirtazapine  I was on for 6 years stopped working.

      Psych wanted to put me on Prozac because thats the drug he liked to prescribe but my GP had already put me on sertraline and Id tried prozac twice before and it didnt work.

      Sleep is still a problem as the mirt knocked me out but the setraline is not doing that

      I have had 7 CBT sessions which has helped with the anxiety and now Im on a waiting list to have a more robust therapy for my depression

      Take Carecool
