Sertraline - Day 8

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hey all. I woke up this morning with the same anxiousness (overwhelming) and the usual closed throat feeling. Got into work and had the heavy chest feelings too, along with dizziness.... However, I am now into the 5th hour of my day and dare I say, I feel a bit (literally a bit) more positive. Not massively different, but I almost (again almost) feel slightly more in control of my thoughts.... Like 10 minutes out of an hour I am not worrying about terminal illness.... Does this make sense?

Are my pills kicking in?!?!?! Still have the dodgy throat closing feeling though which is doing my head in!!!!!!

    Hi LauraLou,  If I am correct Sertraline is generic for Zoloft.  I took Zoloft for years, it is a good med.  That glimmer of a good feeling means the medicine is starting to work.  Don't analyze it, just go with it.  You should see a big difference in a couple of weeks or even sooner.  I am on Paxil now, it saved my life.  These meds do help stay positive.
