Hi everyone....I know most of us are at the point where side effects are driving us mad. Does anyone seem to have a persistent fuzzy head where you feel you cannot think properly with it. I feel odd.....somewhat disconnected

    Hello ... That's exactly how I've been feeling. I'm on my eighth day today (50mg daily) and this is the first day I've not had the feeling you describe. I wouldn't say it's 100% gone but it's much improved. Today is the first day I've felt like going out. Jason

    I'm on day 6 of 25mg and feel lethargic and still pretty fuzzy, pushing myself through exercise and forcing myself to go out at least once a day. Haven't had any full blown panic attacks but just feel really weird.

      yes Andrea, it really is a horrible weird sensation.  It's a good idea to get out every day

      Hi Michelle , me too on sertraline 100 mg for 6 months now I was feeling great and yesterday and today I'm feeling so bad scared and low mood not motivated and this reminded me of the very first couple of weeks when started the med . As u are taking the same did this happened to you ? Or similar ? Uhhh I really want to be myself again that's why I'm taking the med not to feel that way bad . 😔

      Any advice . Sorry to inturupt the conversation with my question . But it really went to the point that I'm tired and want to be happy .

    All though sertraline helped get my panic attacks under control I did feel detached and really fuzzy. Like I couldn’t think fast and my mind wasn’t as sharp as it had been before. After feeling like my attacks were controllable I wanted to try on my own and get off of sertraline as I didn’t like the spaced out/fuzzy feeling.
