Hi there, I started taking a low dose sertraline about a month and a half ago. I was prescribed this to help me get through the waiting period before I find a psychiatrist that will take me.I really like how confident it makes me with my anxiety, and it even helps me feel capable of doing some stuff throughout the day, which is huge. But I have super intense dreams now, sometimes to the point that I don't know if I'm awake or not.Is this common, and is it something I should switch meds for? I do like the medicine otherwise.
Anxiety (Including GAD)
To be honest, I've had weird dreams while I take Sertraline. I would always get tired, drowsy, and fall asleep throughout the day. I'm a quiet and shy person, but once I started taking sertraline for my anxiety/depression, I've started to talk a bit more.
Have you talked to your doctor about how you've been feeling?
I also get weird dreams with Sertraline, also get sleepy during the day . But I have notice a change in my personality I'm more outgoing and talkative.
@ rosie_135 I did try before the weekend to reach my doctor, but they only got back to me today. They think they'll try prazosin to hopefully help. I have so much going on in my head, I'm not quite sure what even is a problem anymore.
@ Chiara Okay, I understand how that can be. I hope they try an alternative and help you out. I'm taking a 100 MG dose of sertraline. I just hope they try the Prazosin.
