I used to post here quite often a few years ago when I first started using Sertraline.
It was hell starting it, and I got pretty much all the side effects you can get from it, so here I am nearly 3 years later needing your advice.
I've been on 150mg for about 2 years, and in the past 6 months, I weaned down to 100mg because I decided I wanted to get off Sertraline altogether, but then decided to stay on 100mg for a bit longer. I've been on 100mg for quite a few weeks now without issues.
The last few days I've been feeling awful. Exhausted (barely able to keep my eyes open all day), headaches, overly sweaty, temperature fluctuations, heightened anxiety, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity, irritability, weird dreams, waking up earlier than usual.
I thought it was due to the quality of sleep that was I was having lately (not great), but this feels a bit more intense than some bad sleep.
Does that sound like perhaps Sertraline has stopped working? I know that the efficacy of SSRI's can weaken after 2+ years. I'm considering going back to 125mg tonight before I sleep.
I'm starting to feel scared again, bringing back all those horrible memories of when I first started.
