Sertraline week 2

Posted , 5 users are following.

Ive done 1 week at 50mg and 1 week at 100mg although i do feel much better and the aide effects have worn off

I still sometimes feel anxious and shaky but can still carry on with every day to day activites, how long till this wears off?

I have my appetite back and still feel abit tired during the day but these shakes am driving me mad

    Kayleigh! You should be doing 50mg for a month then move to100mg to feel the affect! Ive got ocd is why i was moved onto a 100mg.My anxiety levels have dropped a vast amount however i do not know your level of anxiety to help you further! If you wanna talk about it am here to advise you best i can..Nick

      Well different people with different conditions are put on different doses! 50mg made me feel crappy and the first month was difficult! When upped to a 100mg i started to feel much better and anxiety levels are pretty good however i dont get very excited about much but smile alot more ha! What time do you take your daily pill kayleigh?

    Hi Kayleigh, I'm surprised doc moved you to 100mg that quick usually 3-4 weeks on 50, it would certainly explain the anxious,shaky feelings, I had those at 50mg. rest assured they will pass, hang in there, praying for you. Tim
