    I'll post it because someone else might have had an experience with it. 

    Tonight I'm increasing the dosage of my medication but when I first started taking it, it made me really ill and I was being sick. The GP said there's a chance of it happening again and I'm just a bit worried :(

    Did the effects calm down after getting used to it? so it was just the initial burst?

    either way i think its best to remain positive as stress and worry can make you feel queasy! 

    when are you takin your higher dose? x

    I had to take a week off of college. I was being sick for a few days and the general dizziness and other effects lasted for about two weeks. It also made me really tired, I fell asleep during the day the first time I took it so now I take it at night. I'll take the new dose tonight around 9ish

    Oh that doesn't sound good!

    Your gp isn't concerned about it happening again?

    When you take try to make sure you remain calm and maybe distract yourself? do something fun talk about fun, listen to music, colour in ect.

    If you feel sick the NHS has a page with some suggestions to reduce the nausea feeling 
    https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/feeling-sick-nausea/

    There is a chance has you have been taking it that it may not happen with an increase.

    As my when they increased me sisters meds she didn't feel sick or get the same migraines she did when she started x

    @MountainPeak when I had my fluoxetine increased the side effects only lasted a few days as it was already in my system

    @Laine They said the first time that I might feel sick but when I started actually being sick my mum went and spoke to them and they said that it's okay and I had the choice to either get through it or I could stop taking them. I decided to push through it because they said the meds would be good for me in the long run

    Heyyy
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Just was checking if this was working. Finally i found this page. It was getting me so angry, i thought it was my wifi or something being wierd since yesterday

    @Millie2787 Was it as severe as the first time? I'm taking sertraline 
    No I found I just had a slight headache for a few days and that I wasn’t drowsy but I was really drowsy when I first started taking them at the lower dose.

    im not sure about sertraline but in hindsight I should imagine as the medication is already in your system the side effects should be as severe as before

    citalopram Is the best antidepessent for less side affects. Apperently recently they found sertaline hardly does anything

    @Shaunie I used to be prescribed Zopiclone for sleeping and it was horrible! I get what you mean about unnatural sleep, I used to wake up feeling groggy and as if I hadn't actually been to sleep
