My heart beats fast after I take the med. before I go too bed. Will this side effect go away?
This is a serious side effect.
Call your doctor at once if you have:
a seizure (convulsions);
high levels of serotonin in the body - agitation, hallucinations, fever, """fast heart rate""", overactive reflexes, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of coordination, fainting;
low levels of sodium in the body - headache, confusion, slurred speech, severe weakness, vomiting, loss of coordination, feeling unsteady; or
manic episodes - racing thoughts, increased energy, unusual risk-taking behavior, extreme happiness, being irritable or talkative.
As it says inform you DR. asap, tomorrow morning.
All the best...

My 19yr old daughter has been on 200mg of sertraline for 18 months. I feel it isn’t working for her.
