I've been on sertraline for about 4 months, started on 50mg for two weeks then up to 100mg. They helped me tremendously - I was going out every day and felt so much happier in myself. When I had my review with my dr I told him I still felt a little uncomfortable with going too far away from home so he prescribed me 150mg. As they're in two different forms (100mg and a 50) I never started taking both as I was happy, for now, with how I was feeling. I almost had a normal life again!
But in the past week I've been feeling really bad again, I went into town (about a 15 minute walk) as I do so very often now and I felt panicky - I was so close to getting a cab home. I've been VERY irritable and I just have a feeling of dread all the time. Since these symptoms have returned the only change is the manufacturer of my tablets - I didn't even realise they'd changed, I knew the box was different but thought nothing of it. I was on Teva before and now I'm on Actavis. The only reason I noticed the manufacturer was different was because I had to get my box and actually make sure sertraline was in there! Because I feel completly different to before. Is this a likely cause of my symptoms returning? I'm sure if I asked the doctor he would say no but I'm so upset to be feeling this way again.
