You'll settle in to it in about two weeks

Yes I was put on this for PND and breast feeding, I found the extreme drowsyness wore off after a couple of weeks or so, however I always took mine in the morning (no idea why, it was a few years ago now). I never noticed any effect on my baby at all and I breastfed for a year on it. Enjoy the sleep!

Agree with what's been said. I didn't notice an effect on DD but then I was on sertraline from the second trimester. I took it in the morning and bf throughout the day.

Things should start to settle down in a week or so. Your GP may want to up the dose if necessary - I'm assuming you're on the lowest dose? I've been taking between 50 and 250 depending on how I'm feeling/ circumstances.

Glad you're feeling better.

I'm in the lowest dose and it has had a miraculous effect

I've had great experience with Sertraline too. Having previously been on 225mg of venlafaxine for a long time I was a bit hmm as to whether 50mg of something else would have any effect but its been great.

The side effects wore off after about 10 days.

Just started on 50mg this morning. within two and ahl;f hours I felt nauseous and a bit 'spaced out'. not liking this much tbh, but know I have to do it so going to persevere....
