Sertraline 50mg, so nauseas

Posted , 4 users are following.

I just started takingSertraline and have felt so nauseas in the morning. I will spend the first 2-4 hours of my day gagging or dry heaving. Has anyone taken this medication who has tips for the side effects?

    I googled it and it says to call your doctor if this side effect happens.  It's considered a serious side effect.  I wouldn't take anymore.  I took this years ago and didn't have that reaction.  It did after a time make me feel nothing at all.  I took it for depression.  I only stopped because I ride horses (barrel racing) and need to get agressive in the competition

    Im on 100mg. It also made me feel very queezy to start with but as my body got used to it i was fine. If you feel it is too much for you though you should definitely talk to your doctor. There are lots of other medications. I took it first thing in the morning to start with and had to rest for about an hour so i started taking it in the evening when i could relax properly. Try taking it at somepoint in the day when you have a bit of time to yourself if possible as feeling like you have to donstuff and trying to stuff may make you feel sicker.

    Hope this helps x

      How long have you been on it my love as anti depressants can take anything from 2-6 to kick in properly, also maybe the dose could be to high for your body? Im not a doctor but a/ds will make you feel worse before you get better and Im not being disrespectful to anyone but the last place you want to be on is google for anything medical. go back and see your gp my lovely
