What side effects have people had on sertraline? I've had some strange things but don't know if it's meds or anxiety.

      How long have you been on them??

      Forgot to mention the first 3/4 days felt my head was going to

      Nearly 4 week. My face gets hot but don't know if that's anxiety.

      I get face flushing

      But had that before the tablets,

      So think it is part of anxiety symptoms.
