Posted , 3 users are following.

So about two months ago my doctor gave me setter alone 50mg for anxiety and depression... I've started to feel like my old self after the first month but for the past week or so I can feel myself going really down hill and I don't know what to do!! I'm 25 and never had depression in my life I was always so happy nothing could get me down I hate this so much and I feel like I'm slipping back into that state... I'd wake up in re middle of the night crying I'd cry all day couldn't get dressed eat or sleep and I'm so so scared it will happen again please can someone give me some advice! Thank you x

    This might be due to not yet having the correct dosage of Sertraline set.

    It can take time for your body to adjust to this medication, but if you really feel your previous symptoms returning, rather than become anxious about it  perhaps now is the correct time for a further consultation with your GP.
