Ever since having my DS 13 months ago I’ve had elevated heart rate resting it’s anywhere between 80-120 bpm. I am on sertraline for PND. It is really starting to worry me anyone else had this?

Have you mentioned it to your GP? Could it be anxiety related? Or caffeine related?! I personally wouldn't be worried about a heart rate below a hundred, but if it's often higher than that i would make a gp appointment. They might do further investigations

Probably anxiety, when I have bad anxiety my heart rate goes over 100 just sitting in a lecture. Then I tend to notice and concentrate on my heart rate then panic if I feel it's going too fast which in turn speeds it up even more! Try not to worry but of course see a doctor if you're concerned x

Could you be a bit low in iron /anemic?

Fairly common side-effect of SSRIs, but not to be ignored. Do you know whether your pulse is regular? Have you had an ECG since the birth and/or since starting on the antidepressant?
