okay so I started taking sertraline today and I am shaking bad and I am hallucinating a bit (everything keeps turning red) is this normal?
Anxiety (Including GAD)
I would suggest someone taking you to urgent care or the ER. You may need to get off the medication most likely or lower the dosage. I hope your doing ok soon.
Hey there. Pharmacy tech and taker of sertraline, what MG did they start you on? And are you on anything else?
sounds like you need to lower your dose. I had the same issues when I first started, but they went away after I cut my dose in half. if you're also not sleeping, cut your pills NOW and THEN go to an ER to make sure you don't have serotonin syndrome
hey, i take 50 mg everyday. i had to slowly work my way up to 50 and im still gonna bump it up soon. i think you should start small and work your way up based off of others saying you have too high of a dosage
My dosage is 25mg a day
that's the typical starting dose and what I started at, I had to cut it in half down to 12.5mg. I was straight up hallucinating after not sleeping for nearly a week and couldn't stop shaking, so my mom made sure it wasn't an extended release pill and started cutting it in half. I was fine after like three days lol, but I would advise calling your prescribing physician before changing your meds if at all possible
Call your doctor asap or go the er/urgent care!
I didn't experience anything like that. I hope you are feeling better now!
