Hi I've been taking sertraline for just over a week. I was advised to take at night due to me also suffering with bulimia. Over last few days I've been in thr most awful moods. Feeling annoyed with everyone and everything for nothing. I'm wondering if this could be to do with the time I'm taking them

Can anyone help - thanks in advance

    I think it's because your body hasn't yet adjusted to them, toni. The brain needs six weeks to allow sertraline to kick in properly. Many, many people have the issues you're describing for the first coupld of weeks.

    Also, I am on them, too, and I always take them at night. They have helped me enormously.

    Plug on, honey. Give it time.     xx tess

      You will. I think when people are given certain meds they expect instant results - that is not the case with anti-depressants.

      You'll be fine. Keep in touch, ok/    love Tess xx
