      Aww bless u, I got a bout of really bad anxiety and depression last January which only lasted two weeks then went on its own, even tho I started the sertraline the day after it all started it didn't have time to take an effect, I fell pregnant in the feb so came off them, had my baby 3 weeks ago and 2 and a half weeks ago the depression and anxiety started again, I was feeling a little better on tues and wed last week then the tablets must have started to kick in and took an all time low, the past 3 days have been a little better although I wake with horrific anxiety very early and Rush to the loo and dry heave, I have no appetite at all a force myself once a day to eat a few mouth fills of something, I also get pains in the back of my head and feel like am In a daze it's weird, I need to get better for my kids and husbands sake, I dread waking up each morning incase I hit an all time low again, I really hope u get it sorted mayb see your gp and ask him/her to give u another pill that will work along with your anti d to see if it helps

      Hi, I was on sertraline for nearly 2 and half Yrs. I was feeling me again. Before I didn't wanted to go out. I wanted to be left alone, even my kids were a pain for me. Sorry for being so honest. But after me taking it I started feeling better just with 10mg and went up to 200mg. I was running in the park with my kids playing and so on. I took mine in the morning 7am and at night I had sleeping aid when I couldn't sleep. Last October I decided was time to stop. My mistake I had to go back on them on the 12th January. So please keep taking it even if you feel yourself again.

      Wish everyone good lucksmile
