Sertraline 50 mgs

Posted , 2 users are following.

I have recently been prescribed this for depression. I didn't want to take anti-depressants but I'm realising I can't carry on this way any longer. So I'm going to start them tomorrow. Bearing in mind I suffered a brain haemorrhage and as a consequence I have chronic fatigue issues, I need chemical help now as I've tried so many other remedies. Can anyone (who takes sertraline) advise what time of the day - morning or night - is best in their view in regard to fewer side effects. I am worried about being even more a zombie, and I need every ounce of energy I can muster! Thanks in advance!

    Hi, I was on 50mg for 2 months then this last month got put up to 100mg I find the best time of the day to take them is morning and I am more or less fine on them!

    Good luck

      Hi Jane, I've seen improvement in myself and behaviour since they were upped, I think they upped them as 50 just wasn't doing enough for me! I still have my days though. X

    I take mine in the morning as I find that I sleep better at night. When I tried taking them at night I would get horrible dreams. Just take each day as it comes. I hope they help you. God bless

      I love your pseudonym and thank you for your good advice to take each day as it comes. There's not a lot I can do but rest up and hope they alleviate my symptoms quickly. I took only half of one tablet this morning as I dread the side effects, perhaps I'll be braver tomorrow and take a whole one. I hope they've helped you too!
