Adventures in SSRIs
You poor thing - i was prescribed Sertraline for anxiety with the doc saying 'it'll probably get worse for a couple of weeks' and then hopefully improve.' They are still in a drawer as a kind of In Case of Emergency, and I've been working on other ways to help it (therapy, some really excellent natural anti-anxiety supplements that I didn't think would work but they did. Happy to let you know what they are if you want. I know lots of people who swear by Sertraline and it changed their life (not sure what you're on) but equally lots who say the side-effects were awful.
