I've got an appointment later today with GP and was going discuss trying a different SSRI. I've been on sertraline since end of July increasing to 100mg 8 weeks ago.

I don't know what to do really, I seem to have some good days but it's so up and down. Today I can't stop crying but had a wonderful weekend. I never seem to have stabilised out as I thought I would have done by now. I have tried everything I can to help myself along the way, exercise, counselling, yoga etc.

Any advice welcome on changing meds please?

Gp has changed me to citalopram 20mg. Apparently, no weaning required just straight swap?

I'd be really grateful of any advice on what to expect side effect wise as I'm nervous.
