I've suffered with panic and anxiety for over 10 years but always had pretty good control and over it. For the last 2-3 weeks it's taken control of me. I was just wondering if anyone was on sertraline? I'm currently on 100mg but my doctors has upped me to 150mg and I'm abit scared to take them.
Any advice more than welcome.

It worked well for me at first. I then stupidly took myself off it and when 8 went back on it it gave my the most horrific anxiety attacks. I can't work out why it changed but its been horrible.
Have you taken it at all yet?

I have not stopped taking the 100mg. It's just adding 50mg to my dose.
I'm planning on starting then tomorrow because it's not fair on those around me being this way.
Have you restarted yours? x

@Rosie92 I'm too scared to. It started wiping me out. As I'm a lone parent I became scared of being impaired looking after my child. At times I felt delerious.
I take pregabalin now on its own to help with nerve pain but also my anxiety. I still suffer but alot more manageable x

I've been on 100mg of sertraline for over 5 years now, so I'm hoping that adding 50mg won't effect me with side effects to much because I'm already on the 100mg.
I'm the same, they tried to put me on diazepam but as a mother to a 9 year old I won't risk it. I just want something to stop the physical symptoms so I can try to sort my head lol x
