Mornings feel like I have a hangover

Posted , 4 users are following.

Well it's 17th week on sertraline and the mornings are still bad anxiety and feel like I've got a hangover every morning

Has anyone had this after taking this med so long ?

Could the dose be to high ?

    I too am on Sertline, what dose r u on? This will b week 6 for me 1st on 50mg and then Tuesday I went to 100mg. I havent had any side effects really only feeling nause and tired the first week other than that fine. I would go back to your GP, and tell him/her how ur feeling. Good luck.

      Hey I to take Propanolol each morning 7.30 then I take Sertline 2 hours later, the pharmacist told me to leave a gap of about 1-2 hour, when I started  sterling told her that I take Propanolol 7.30 each morning. Maybe your dose isn't high enough for you? Or it just may not be suiting you? 17 weeks is a long time espicially if you still not feeling right? I take mine each morning as I was told its best time to take!. But everyone is different go speak to your doctor who can advise what is best for u. Good luck!!!.

    hi

    ​dose could be too low,or the meds are not working right for you, your doc will know, ask about beta blockers for the adrenaline rush you could be experinacing, propranolol can work along side of sertraline, doc will need to check things with you to be sure, take care

      I've had 7 good weeks, dr just keeps telling me to continue, so I really don't know what to do, evenings are a lot better than mornings.
