Side effects got better, then worse

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi, i've been taking sertraline for 15 days today, and i'm a bit worried about the side effects i'm having.

During my first week, i didn't experience any increased anxiety or depression. In fact, my anxiety got a lot better right from the first week. Only a few physical side effects that got better after a few days.

But since 4 days ago i started to have an increase in anxiety and agitation, which worried me a bit.

Today i woke up super drowsy, had chills, trouble concentrating and feel very weak. What worries me is the fact that the side effects seem irregular, as opposed to linear (bad at the beginning and gradually gets better) which i suppose is the usual.

Just wanted to know if anyone has gone through a similar beginning.
