Sertraline side effects

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi there I have been on Sertraline since Feb this year initially for panic attacks and PMDD(which is now being treated otherwise) I am on a dose of 100mg daily and I take this at night time. There are a few things I have noticed, for a while but only really thinking on them now.

  1. I have gained a lot of weight since the beginning of the year, around 2 stone. This could be due to a multiple of factors regarding my health but I would just like to see if anyone else had a similar issue.
  2. I feel sooo unmotivated to do anything, at work and not at work, it's so frustrating. I have noticed that when I am not at work, I literally do nothing at all or barely anything and then suddenly have a bit of motivation from 3pm onwards! I wondered if anyone else noticed this? And also considering taking my tablet morning or afternoon if this is potentially the cause.
  3. And lastly I have been feeling down and depressed, this could be due to other factors however I feel that this year I have lost myself, I don't care about things, myself, I have let myself go and I am just like a completely different person and I hate it! Again, wondered if this could be related and if anyone has had similar?

Thanks so much in advance! Would be great to get some peer support as I feel totally alone with it all.
