Thank you so much doctor. I am happy to stay with this medication as it has helped with my anxiety. I had read online that not all tremors from sertraline went after stopping - so I was really worried as my tremor is worse since being on the sertraline. But if you say it will stop after stopping the medication then I feel re assured. I will hopefully not be on the medication for too much longer.

Dont worry, it will go back to normal once you stop the medicine.
