Ugh. Anti-depressant (Sertraline/Zoloft) side effects? watch

    Was prescribed sertraline last week for PTSD, and it just makes me feel completely drained. I'm constantly tired and in a zombie like state, yet whenever I go to bed I simply cannot sleep! I also have a feely of nausea, yet I can't physically get sick, it's just a weird feeling in my stomach. I keep getting bouts of dizziness too.

    Shall I stick with it? These SEs aren't too severe, I guess. Just making me feel slightly crap.

    Anybody else had any positive/negative experiences on sertraline, or indeed any other anti-depressant?

    yeah those side effects sound pretty common for anti-depressants. You can either ask to change if you can't put up with it, or you can try waiting it out and seeing if the anti-depressant effect kicks in.
