Sleep problems coming off Sertraline



Well-known member

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has experienced this before and any advice if you have?

I am reducing my Sertraline dose gradually and recently went down to 50mg (less than the min dose).

I have notice I now can’t sleep and it is very specific. So I am really tired but in the phase between wake and sleep my mind is hoping from one bizarre thing to the other rapidly until I jump from my sleep in a total sweat (despite not being hot at all).

Now other things are happening at the same time, was in labour/gave birth during these episodes. So the connection Could lie there too.

Anyone else experience this coming off Sertraline. Support would be fantastic! Thanks
