AD's doing nothing after 6 weeks

sertraline 50mg
Can't say I feel any better

If I wasn't actually depressed, what would they do?

Probably not much, but if you are still feeling down, you could ask to have the dose upped. I'm on 100mg/day and its made the world of difference to me.

I had previously been on Citalopram which helped a bit but never blasted my anxiety away like this seems to have done.

It might alternatively be worth trying an alternative AD. In clinical trials for example, there's not much to pick between the 2 drugs I have had, but personally, one has worked much better for me than the other, and I am sure there must be some element of your personal chemistry in it because we are not identical, we just mostly fit into a spectrum of "normal" levels of things.

Good luck.

I can't figure out what I'm feeling, just know I feel crap and need some help
I'm stuck in a ridiculous vicious circle, and can't seem to get out of it

Go back to your doctor, they can change the dose or change the medication to something that may well suit you better.

Good Luck and trust something will start working for you soon.

does anyone have any experience of Sertraline seemingly dulling the senses?
Not literally, but I just feel nothing

Will make a gp appointment
