I started taking sertraline 3 weeks ago at 25mg , have been on 50mg for a week now. There are minor uncomfortable side effects, but a big change in my anxiety, so that's alright! However, I've been experiencing severe stomach pain in the early evening that lasts for 3-4 hours. No vomiting/diarrhea, just severe pain in my stomach. I take this med in the am, with breakfast. Please, does anyone have advice on how to avoid this? the pain is comparable to childbirth pains, except constant, and the following morning my stomach feels weak and achy from all the cramping.
If it is not constipation or gas, then you should mention it to the Dr. Since it is occurring so far past the time you take it, I tend to think it is likely not related to the Sertraline. If it was caused by the medication, you would have it within the first hour or two of taking the medication.
