Posted , 5 users are following.

After suffering with depressions for about 10years and anxiety for the last 2years I decided to visit my doctors today. Didnt really have a choice after having a panic attack at work it was hard to hide it anymore. Anyone else been put on these two meds and what was your side affects?

    Hi I am on sertraline but on the 150 mg dose.  I can't remember if I got any side effects when I started off on the 100 mg dose but now I get a dry mouth and nasty dreams.  It doesn't mean you will though as we are all different.  I hope you start feeling a lot better soon.  x

    Hi Paula,

    I was on 50mg sertraline for a year, no side effects. Went up to 100mg a few weeks ago, felt drowsy and tired for up to a week but i powered through that and it was good because it gave me a really blank, deep sleep. No other side effects, sertraline is usually the first AD a doctor puts someone showing symptoms of depression on because its known as the gentlest.

      I was prescribed Prozac first then Mirtazapine.  Sertraline was third time lucky.  I still take a very low dose of mirtazapine at night as well which helps me sleep.  x
