I’m currently on Sertraline-6 weeks in. My doctor is recommending beta blockers but I’m a bit hesitant. I feel like Sertraline isn’t taking full effects yet or not working entirely for me because I still have physical symptoms. I don’t want to go through another medication unless I know it’s better. what have you all experienced? Any opinions on what might be better?

Hi , I'm on anti depressants and also propranolol for the physical symptoms of my anxiety, which I find work quite well . They have calmed my racing heart which a couple of times I've gone to A&E for. Maybe talk to your doctor and discuss your concerns. X
