I’ve had episodes of anxiety and depression since I was 30 , when my young son had cancer , thank God, he is fine , I’m 58 now and this is my 4 th episode over the years , a life changing event happened in November when my new grandchild was born with a syndrome, the vomiting started and I felt so low and useless , I immediately went on ciprilex upped to 20 mg after 3 months not a great improvement, on sertraline 100mg now 2 weeks , morning vomiting has stopped but I feel so uptight and my appetite is awful , was bad on ciprilex also , I go to work every day but it’s afternoon before I settle , I take propranolol ( beta blocker) once or twice a day . Any similar experiences out there ?
Sertraline - sertraline 100 mg and increased agitation?

I am 57 and my anxiety started after a medical emergency with my daughter ( she recovered and is well) periodically over the years it has spiked, usually after a life event .
Sertraline, like other SSRI drugs, can often make you feel worse before you feel better… I know, it sucks! I had increased anxiety for about a week during weeks 2-3. Then it settled down and I am doing much better. I’m seeing my doctor this week and am considering going up slightly in dosage but see what she says first.
Give it time, it will help but it takes at least 4-6 weeks.
