Feeling desperate and awful after restarting medication

I was on Sertraline for a few months this year. I was feeling much better but came off by mistake in July when I had a bereavement and forgot to take them.

I've been grieving but doing ok since then until a few days ago when I just started feeling horribly anxious again.

So yesterday I took one Sertraline tablet thinking I would start taking them again and then get to the docs early this week.

But OMG I feel bloody awful now. Almost immediately more anxious, no sleep, throwing up this morning, feeling like there is no point. This is what happsned last time I took Sertraline but I put some of the black feeling down to already feeling terrible.

So now I am panicking that this is me not the drug. I can't cope with weeks of waking up being sick and feeling terrified all day.

I am going to the docs later but am not sure what to do with myself in the meantime. I am with DP but he is new and I don't want to burden him. My heart is racing and I just feel so panicked.

Hi I've not been on sertraline but I have found the 2 out of 3 times that I've been on Prozac I've had nausea and dizziness for the first couple of weeks which has then settled. I hope this settles for you too.
