I'm switching from Trintellix to Sertraline today. Is there anything I should expect or be prepared for (good or bad)?




Nausea and Vomiting

    Hey Kitty, good luck! I would be attentive to any GI symptoms such as nausea and diarrhea. Also, some prefer to take it before going to bed but for others it could interfere with sleep.. I guess you have to try and find out:)

    sertraline 75mg here, i’ve been taking it for i think 6 months now? something like that. works super for my depression! but not so much for my anxiety :/ my eyes can be dilated sometimes, but that’s the only side effect i’ve had

    start low if you can, it tends to make people nauseous. for me, it made my headaches more sensory-sensitive and increased my nausea. that's the only bad thing i can say about it. it works pretty well for my depression

    Hi! Some people experience sleepiness and take the medicine regularly at night. I take it first thing when I wake up, but I’ve been doing so for yours. Find what works for you or if your doc has a recommendation. Best to you! 💕

    I have been on and off of sertraline for years and I’ve never had any negative reactions unless I don’t slowly increase or decrease my dose.
