Hello, I was recently diagnosed with mild depression following relationship counselling, I was prescribed Sertraline and have only had 6 days @ 50mg and have have the worst time of my life. I noticed the effects straight away, increased anxiety but yesterday afternoon came over with a deep depression, spent most of the night rolling around and feeling suicidal, worse than I have ever felt before................been back to GP this morning who has taken me off tablets but just looking for some support, has anyone else experienced this?
I think I've always been borderline depressed but manage it through sports and other things, I suffered some bad experiences through recreational substance abuse in my teens (now 37) which has left me with low self esteem and the Setraline felt like that again.
I want to avoid drugs where possible and use therapy/counselling - my life was ok ish upto 2 weeks ago, albeit on slow path to divorce, and feels lmy whole world has turned upside down.
Like I said, just looking for support :-(
