i started taking sertraline in january for my GAD and OCD scary intrusive thoughts, i have never been on medication before for it but ive had all types of OCD and Anxiety since i can remember, i was on 50mg on sertraline for 4 months it helped a bit but i was still having bad days where it would flair up, they have upped it to 100mg a week ago and i deffo felt more effects feel more "normal" and less scary thoughts and managing them which im really happy with, but should it make them go completely? and would it be properly in my system yet? if somebody whos been through the same thing could answer that it would be great! thank you :)
I had therapy for years for GAD and have taken numerous medications. Zoloft was one I couldn't take but currently take the maximum dose of Cymbalta XR. Therapy taught me to change my mind set when negative/intrusive thoughts pop up. Replace the negative thought with a positive. The power of positive thinking can do wonders. It took a long time but I conquered my anxiety. Have you had any mental health therapy?
