Ive been diagnosed with mild anxiety by my GP but living with the symptoms is frightening and has taken over my life - i get DP most days and this is the most disturbing symptom of me

He has suggested that i take 50mg a day of sertraline but reading the side effects on the tablets im terrified of taking them for feeling worse

Can anyone advise of their ecperiences - im thinking of not taking them and trying to get through this myself

i know the general advice is to stick to the med for a while and the side effects will eventually wear off. sorry but i cant do that. if it starts messing with me IMHO then it aint worth it. its supposed to be helping me why is it just adding more problems on the pile i already have? thats helping?? ive been on a buttload of different meds. some have left me with PERMANANT side effects like RLS. others had no adverse effects at all like wellbutrin and i was on that for over a year. listen to your body. if your body says no that usually means NO.
