Medication change up..

Hello, so i saw my GP earlier. He apologised for the crisis team not mentioning i will gain weight with mirtazapine. He has changed it to Sertraline 50mg. He wants to tackle my anxiety and eating disorder as it has flared back up but wont give me lorazepam again. He is going to speak to the psychiatrist at the gp surgery to see if they will let him increase my Risperidone without waiting weeks for an appointment as he knows the crisis team were going to weeks ago but i stupidly refused help from them. He has also put me on Zopiclone.

Anyone been on Sertraline? If so, what were your side effects?

    Heeey. Glad you're getting the right medication :)
    I've been on sertraline. My side affect we're feeling sick, being sick, dizziness and massive massive eye pupils. So went to half a pill.
    I'm not sure what 50 mg is

    But hope you dont get any side affects.
    Stop imagining fake scenarios and hurting your own feelings

    Hi @KaydenK,

    I haven't been on any medication for anxiety but I just wanted to say that, it's good to hear that you've been given some new medication. I hope it works better for you.

    Have a lovely day :)
