Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Thank you for the question.
How old are you? Why did you start Sertraline? What was the dose that you started with?
You should consult your doctor about this. You may need to start at a lower dose of 25 mg to minimize these early side effects that occur commonly. After a week or two with 25 mg, you can then increase to 50 mg. These are early transient side effects and are not worrisome. To prevent them your doctor needs to change the dose and advise you to start with 25 mg.
Does this make sense to you? Please reply.
Thank you for your reply.
If you are having these severe side effects which are making you very shakey then you should call your doctor and fix an early appointment. You may decide to discontinue if the side effects are severe and if your depression and anxiety are not severe. But if you have severe depression and anxiety then please continue taking them if the side effects are mild.
