Hormones - panic / anxiety

Posted , 2 users are following.

I've started on a drug called serimel 25mg as well as a low dose Xanax . I've googled serimel but can't find anyone that's tried it .

I originally started getting panic attacks - the most terrifying are at night , I'd give my left arm to get rid of them !

The attacks have progressed into a mostly daily anxiety so my GP has prescribed these. Any one have any good stories ? Or know how quick they work ? Wish they would kick in before 2am tonight !!

    I'm on 200 mg at night of this. (sertraline/serimel)

    It is a typical SSRI anti-depressant which takes about six weeks to kick in fully. also, you're on a low dose, so you may need to get that adjusted.

    having said that, I feel great now!

    So stick with it. I know six weeks wasn't what you wanted to read but there was no point lying to you.       all de best, Fee.       love Tess xx

    I would change the woring of your message, Fee. Most people call it sertraline. Serimel is a very unknown brand name for the same medication, so a lot of people won't respond because they won't know what it is.

    25mg? That's very stingy. They could at least have started you on 50mg!

      Thanks Tess , the pharmacy gave me the generic cheaper version , I'd never heard of it before . Think I was happy enough to start on the lower dose as I was reluctant to take anything at all ! I'll google sertraline now .
