I’m on my 3rd day of raking sertraline for anxiety. My anxiety is so much worse, I’m so tired, no motivation, head feels very fuzzy. I’ve taken a week off work as I can concentrate. Is this normal? And when will I feel better? I don’t want to leave the house or get off the couch.
Hi! Sorry to hear you are in the crappy first few weeks of treatment. It takes at least two weeks to settle into your system. Unfortunately our symptoms seem to swing during this adjustment time. The first week is usually rough. It took two solid weeks for me to start feeling somewhat better. So, be patient with yourself, talk with your doctor, try meditation and walks outside to help clear your head. Talk to friends. Good luck and know lots of us are going through this.
