Hi all, just wondering if anyone has experienced hot flashes/flushes with Sertraline? I started on 50mg and started getting extreme heat across my whole body for around 20-30 seconds a good few times a day so I stopped taking it. I decided to chop the pill in half and take 25mg but again same thing. I called my doctor who said while not something they are aware of I should keep taking it.

I also experienced sinus pressure and what feels likes like a lump in my throat but I think this is more post natal drip related as its not all the time and when I clear my throat it feels pretty normal!

I have has anxiety for 10 year or so and finally sought therapy in Aug 21. My anxiety improved a little but then got slowly worse and then in Jan 22 I decided to try meds. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
