hi no hallucinatins!felt a bit spaced out for couple of weeks.did loose weight initially but starting to put it back on.also found it decreased libido and made ability to orgasm more difficult-this improved after 3 weeks or so.would recommend it though seemed to make me more chilled out and i stopped wanting to murder my 4 year old dd

i had the same side effects when i came off sertraline (and when i went back on them) i would speak to your gp before taking yourself off them. you are supposed to be "ok" for 6m before coming off them (in an ideal world)
