Hi luisa (and everyone else),
I was wondering how you are doing now?
I started on sertraline 100mg 2 weeks ago, I changed from citalopram 20mg. I am also on pregabalin which is prescribed for generalised anxiety disorder(GAD), I am coming round to thinking that my anxiety is stress related rather than GAD as the pregabalin is having no effect on my anxiety.
Since starting the sertraline my anxiety has increased massively, I have 2 children (5 and 1.5) and getting them dressed and to where they are supposed to be is hell at the moment. I don't feel like I can cope with going out but I have to force myself.
I am off sick from work due to not being able to function with the anxiety.
So hoping the sertraline makes my life liveable. I am also trying mindfulness but it's early days with that.
I'd love to hear from anyone that has any advise or positive experiences they could share.
