Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Feel sick like nausea n bad head
Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

I see.

it can take some time for the sertraline to get to the correct level in your system.

you could also be fighting off a virus infection if are you not getting enough rest or sleep

you should go to the hospital or see your GP doctor and see if you have a viral infection.

you stopped it for 4 days or 4 weeks?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
4 days
Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

I see.

4 days is not too bad

you can get your sertraline levels back up now that you are back home and taking them.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Wen I first started it I felt these symptoms but they went and now I've missed 4 I'm worried cause I feel really dizzy n sick
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
N I keep going really hot n sweaty
Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

it sounds like your anxiety symptoms are bad as well

bad anxiety symptoms can make you worried and make you dizzy and nauseous as well

do you have medications like xanax or ativan or valium or clonazepam to help decrease your anxiety symptoms?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No nothing like tht. Just hope it goes cause I work long hours too
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Is it a concern do I need to phone hospital
Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

yes, your symptoms should get better soon, that that you started back up on your sertraline.

I don't need to phone hospital
Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

you should take your own temperature

if you don't have a fever over 38C and if you are eat and drinking, then most likely you don't need to phone the hosptial

if your nausea gets worse and if you vomit or have fever above 38C, then you should phone the hospital.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I'm eating n drinking just feel sick when I do
Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

you may benefit from pepto bismal or maalox or mylanta to help calm down and setting your stomach so you don't continue to feel sick to your stomach.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Is tht the pink stuff in bottle ??
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Can I get it from chemist
Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

yes, the pepto bismal is at the local drug store or chemist

you can buy it there

it can help calm down the stomach for some patients.

ginger or ginger tea can help settle the stomach as well

let me know if you have other questions.

if it gets worse go hospital?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

yes, if it gets worse, you can go to the hospital

but the peptobismal can help your nausea symptoms at this point.

I would try that first.
