      hi 😃 just stick with it. I know its hard 😦 it's super hard. but the benefits will come. it seems like it goes on forever I know I have been their. all this started because i had a major panic attack out of the blue. and i ever since i have been suffering from anxity and panic. i was i citalopram 20 weeks first. then i switched to 50 mg of sertraline. a few weeks back I felt almost normal. but I upped my dose to 75 just to try give me that little kick to get me fully better. and since I switched 2 weeks ago I have been feeling a little bad. nothing to major. but the thing that keeps me going is that I know from taking 50mg you do get better. it just takes time. I also have propranolol 3 times a day to keep me calm they work aswell. maby you need something for the side effects like propranolol or diazepam.. just try and stat strong 😃 you will beat this

      haha dont worry about the full stops. well if the sertraline is doing that to you. try something else. I mean I had citalopram and that was kind of like that for me. but for you it might not be. they are the only 2 I have had. but my sister had mitezipine and swears buy them. the only thing with them is they knock you out so best off taking them at night lol. I'm sorry I cant be more help to you tho 😦 I can only give advise on my experience. I hope you figure it out 😃
