Hi guys me again... been on sertaline since July started on 25, 50 and now almost 4 weeks on 75mgs. I was feeling so good last week that I posted some really positive posts.
Yesterday I started back at work and with it being the first day back I was stressed.. you know what it's like after being off.
Anyway today I woke up with the sense of dread and the high anxiety. I look at my kids and think I can't look after them and have some really dark thoughts about this med not working and going back to the days before sertaline. Being sectioned has even crossed my mind and I know that is irrational.. but you know what it's like when we go to that dark place.
Surely the meds should be working. I have only been on 75 for 4 weeks... Should I accept it will take longer and not take into account that I started the meds in July.
I am seeing my doc on Monday but honestly the ups and downs are driving me nuts..
I have had anxiety and panic disorder for 28 years.. since my first child was born so I guess i won't be cured over night..
Please send me some positive replies
Lots of love
