I have just been prescribed sertraline 50mg after being on loepramine for a year, I came of that because of the heart rate side effects. I took my first sertraline after evening meal last night and hardly slept, I had stomach ache all night and felt so sick, nauseous and faint this morning that I had to lie on the bathroom floor for a bit. I am now back in my pyjamas and trying to rest.
I really don't like taking medication but I feel that I need something and the Doc says that sertraline is a good one for anxiety as well. He said to start on 50mg but I am wondering if it might be advisable to drop it to 25mg for few days or just try to ride it out and hope things get better.
