    Hi Lynda,

    I started taking this about 6 months a go, also had the contraceptive injection start at the same time. i have a lot of hot flushes but the worst symptom i get is really bad night sweats, my bed is soaking every morning. i have had 2 injections now and the last one is due to run out in 4 weeks. i am not sure whether it is that of the quetiapine (sertraline in a different name) so am waiting til then to see if it continues. but seeing this post has made me think maybe it is the pills x

      what meds will you use in future.  What dosage and for how long were you on sertraline.  Forgive me if I asked this question before. Did you ever feel any relief?

    Yes I do but I put this down to the change of life as I still get hot flushes.  I have not heard of it being caused by sertraline.  Bev x
