Side effects of sertraline

Posted , 3 users are following.

Does anyone find that their symptoms and side effects can differ from day to day? Last week I had headache and blurred vision but the last two days had a tight knot in upper stomach.

    Hi Iris

    I am actually being weened off Sertraline 150 mg. I have had nausea, headaches and stomach problems, fatigue, fuzzy head, lightheadedness.  I would assume that the side effect when starting Sertraline would probably be quite similar..

      Wean yourself slowly....very slowly, regardless of whatever your doc says.  I usually miss every third day for a few weeks, then every second day for a few more weeks etc etc

      Hi haley 

      I don't drink alcohol anymore it really doesn't mix well with medication and if anything makes your depression worse..

      I don't have OCD but I can totally understand needing medication to help.

      I am being weened off Sertraline to be introduced to  Cipralex for depression but I have Fibromyalgia and hoping this helps pain..
