Hi there I'm new today to this forum. I've been on sertraline for 4 years and a few weeks ago my medication stopped working. I'm waiting to see my G.P to discuss other options.
I'm currently off sick from work. I have no energy so constantly sleeping. Loss of appetite. And at times when I can eat a little my stomach starts churning and I feel awful. Or end up running to the toilet as it goes straight through me!.
My reason for joining this forum is to beable to help others with my experiences of mental health and also learn from others.
😇

Hi Siggsy, how much sertraline are you taking a day??
Sorry if it’s too personal.

I've gone up to 200mg now. This did this to me 4 years ago. Nothing is too personal to me. I'm just glad I found a active forum to discuss our issues.😇

I was on sertraline about 15yr ago was ok but over time I needed more for same effect.
I did that with a lot of meds.
Different meds work for different conditions obviously but also what works for some may not for the other. You may need a medication review. Tc

Yes I'm hoping to see doctor tomorrow. Will keep people updated.
Thanks for your reply 😇
