My psychiatrist has today given me a prescription for seroxat and sertraline. I can't find anywhere where it says I should be ok taking them both. She said it will help me sleep better and control my PNP better. I'm really worried about weight gain and muscle spasms too and I expect both will have side effects on top!
As someone who had a very serious ed and still panics about food then weight gain would make my problems worse.
He said one will counter the side effects of the other because previous rounds of anti depressants have led me to attempted suicide. Obviously that's not what I want when I already think someone is trying to kill me!
Have you got a follow-up appt with the psychiatrist booked in *@plain*? I suggested GP for any queries in the meantime as they are usually more easily accessible and can themselves ask for clarification from psych if necessary.
Hi @Privateandconfidentialplease I'm still feeling rotten and can't sleep now which is making me bad tempered. I'm sure I'll get used to them and the rough patch will go away. I'm going to call the office at 9 to get some advice and ask my cpn if she has any advice and can come with me to see my dr (I'm off work all week for half term but my DH isn't so my 2yo has to come and my cpn loves him so takes him upstairs to see everyone!).
I purposely chose half term to start my new medication in case it was bad. My jaw is fixed and very painful still so I can't eat much. At least I won't be getting fat!
