I'm changing from Citalopram to Sertraline as of today. What can I expect?

We are TTC and I'm on 20mg of Citalopram and have stopped as of today to start 50mg of Sertraline.

The dr said I may well experience a bad dip for the next two weeks but to ride it out.

Has anyone here got any experiences of changing between the two, how was it for you?

I didn't but many people are happy with sertraline.
if too much side effects you can start with 25 mg every other day etc.
good luck.

I found starting citalopram and dose increases very hard and I was dreading the changeover to Sertraline but actually it was very easy for me.
Unfortunately Sertraline wasn't effective though.

I had no issues with the switch at all.
