    Hi I have just read your messge. While feeling hot and nausea is a very common side effect of this medication I would be inclined to have a word with your g.p. The side effects you mention are unpleasant, when I first started taking Sertraline I also had these side effects but they did wear off. Also are you feeling any better after 9 weeks of taking Sertraline and are these side effects the same ,worse or not as bad from first starting the medication. If the side effects are worse then I would see your g.p. I hope you feel better soon and this annoying side effect will wear off in time. All in all I would have a word with your g.p. Lucky

    Hi there thank you for reading my reply. I so glad you are feeling better than you were. It sounds like your body is getting use to taking Sertraline but as I have already said in previous message it dose take time. To be honest with you I think It took almost 5/6 months to feel how I do now, thats not to say I had side effects for that long because I didn't. It took my body at least 4 months to settle down but it's well worth it. I'm feeling gr8 now and the more I seem to take the medication the better I am feeling. When you go back to see your g.p. do mention the side effects and see what he say's but it sound all positive to me. If you would like to talk to me again please do. Have a lovely day. LUCKY.

    Hi Guest Mary - depending on your age the night sweats could be coincidental, ie cause by something else such as the menopause? Just a thought.

    Hello there, yes I get very hot in the middle of the night and sweaty, my boyfriend mentioned it to me this morning. No nausea, I am on 50mg and have been on it for about 5 weeks and feel a lot better, I was randomly crying aout of nowhere and really dark and gloomy, mostly I am better, however I do get sleepy aswell but I take mine in the afternoon about 5 now and it is much better.
