Well, I have been prescribed Sertraline. Not just for the depression, but for the PTSD and the general anxiety and panic that accompanies it. I'm "starting" on 50mg a day, but not until Saturday because I have an exam on Thursday and the psychiatrist said I should wait until afterwards in case it makes me ill. I was just wondering how many of you have used this, either for depression or an anxiety disorder (or both). Did it help? How quickly did it take effect? What side-effects (if any) did you experience? How much did you find you needed to take and for how long? Any advice of this nature is much appreciated. I've read all that Wikipedia etc has to say, so I know the technical stuff. I was just wondering what the actual experience is, in real life. I'm also particularly interested in how it reacts with alcohol, diazepam, and tramadol (not all at once though!!). Again, I've looked it up but various sites don't seem to agree at all, especially with regards to alcohol. Thanks :smile:.
