    Basically, I've suffered on and off with low mood and anxiety for a few years. Normally a few months on meds seem to get rid of it, and then it gets triggered again at a later point by stress/major life events.

    This time round I've been on Sertraline 100mg/day since October, and I've noticed recently that I'm no longer the introvert that I have been all my life up until now.

    I wouldn't say I'm becoming the life and soul of the party, but I feel I could probably say boo to a goose if I really had to. I'm finding I can start (and hold) meaningless conversation with customers at work whereas before I'd generally just make polite non-committal statements and do all I could to get them through my checkout and away from me as quickly as possible.

    I've even gone as far as making slightly flirty conversation with a guy I've had a crush on for a year or so (even though he's seeing someone - boo!) which I wouldn't normally have considered doing.

    So err... Is a sudden switch from introversion to mild extroversion a good thing? I've always been quite content with being a quiet soul, and although it bothered me I came to terms with it.

    I need these tablets hahaha, fluoxetine does not do that . I wouldn't say it's a bad thing. If being like this is making you feel more comfortable and confident and most importantly happy, then continue to take them. Obviously, don't get addicted to them since I bet after a few months, they will try and ease you off them but for now, enjoy the positive effects they have on you
