I am on sertraline and it makes me feel worse now then I ever did what would happen if I stoppped cold turkey

Hello bradstreet. All great answers. I'll add this. Whats going to happen? The possibility of some fairly nasty side effects. Anxiety levels might/will be very high, you might become hostile, possible changes in the rhythm of your heart, panic attacks and insomnia. Its recommened that you taper, gradually so to avoid or keep the side effects to a minimum. Best regards,pledge

Hi I was on sertraline for a year and my gp told me to just stop taking it, 6 months later I was on holiday and my panics came back. He then told me perhaps it was to early to come off them. They have suited me and have had not problems being on them, if you go to see your gp he will make you come off them gradually so you don't get with drawel . Apparently sertraline is one of the new tablets that are not habit forming. Good luck with comeing of your pills.

fFRST OF ALL YOU NEVER EVER SHOULD JUST STOP TAKING YOUR MEDICATION FROM ONE DAY TO THE NEXT IT CAN CAUSE SERIUOS EFFECTS ON YOUR ORGANISM.
SECOND CONTACT YOUR DCOTOR AND UNDER HIS/HER SUPERVISON START LOWERING YOUR DOSE BIT BY BIT... NEVER COLD TURKEY... OK... THAT WOIULD BE A VERY BIG MISTAKE.
