      dont be nervous jen or nichola these are common side affects of initially taking anti depressants. they take between 2-6 weeks to kick in mine took abut four this time and they do make you feel worse before you feel better. this is because they are renewing/replacing the good feel cells which make us happy please bear with then as they do kick in and will help. im not telling this to worry you or make you nervous but to help you understand why we feel so bad in the initial stages hope this helps you both

    Took Valium for two days it does take the edge but makes me a lil dizzy, dizziness has been a major issue for me the doctors at the er think its anxiety related. My anxiety is extra high during the daytime so I'm very nervous about taking sertaline I was prescribed 50mg doctor said I can cut it in half. Also have lost of appetite
