I have suffered from depression for years, now in early 40s, and have been told I will always need to be on anti-depressants. I was on Citalopram for about 10 years & asked to switch last January because I was fed up of having no libido. I was put on Sertraline 50mg and has been ok, but hadn't had a bad depression. Unfortunately stress at work brought on a very bad depression and for the first time in years I've had suicidal thoughts (though not seriously). My medicine was upped to 100mg for 2 weeks and increased to 150mg a week ago. I don't feel like I'm getting better at all. I feel anxious all the time and have had panic attacks, which I never used to get. I just don't want to do anything, talk to anyone and would happily stay in bed all the time. I don't sleep well. I've been off work for 3 weeks and am supposed to go back in a week and don't know that I can face it. I'm probably going to go back to doctor tomorrow anyway, but I just wondered if anyone had had similar experience. I was searching the net about Sertraline & came across this forum.
