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

Hi Janey

I moved your topic here because I thought you'd get more response if it was in this section.

The only thing you can do is weigh out the pros and cons of how much better a drug makes you feel against any potential side effects. Unfortunately you can't do this unless you take the drug in the first place, so it all depends on how well equipped you are to deal with this by yourself, versus giving the drugs a go.
