Hi Tina
Yes, I have been through something similar. I was on Sertraline for two years for bad panic and anxiety. I didn't have any problems with it at all. I wish you luck!

I transferred from Cipramil to Sertraline in March 05.
I've found the Lustral fine and have made progress with CBT and returned to work.

Good luck....don't forget it could end being your thoughts rather than the tablets making you feel strange !

Bye for now

I went on to 50mg of lustral 9 weeks ago,after 4 weeks they upped me to 100mg,2 weeks ago they upped it again 150mg.I still wake up with major anxiety but the evenings are really good now.I know 6 people that are on this med and they swear by it. How long does it take to level out.Only positive reply's please.

I started sertraline 4 days ago, I feel really good, have a bit of nausea about 4 hours after I take it but its not unbearable. Have had a bit of upset tummy again not too bad. The first few days I felt very hyper and nervy but it was easily tolerated. Today I feel quite calm, not so hyper. All in so far, nothing for you to worry about. Give it a go. Everyone is different.
