Anyone in the UK taken Sertraline anti depressant?

No offence to our American friends - it's just that I know many of you take this medication, but I've never yet encountered one Brit who's been on it!

So if anyone from the UK is out there and has taken/is taking Sertraline, please let me know your opinion of it - how did it compare to other SSRIs?

Many thanks for your help.

    I'm on it and have been for the last 3 years. I was taking Prozac before, my doctor took me off the Prozac cos I'd been on them for quiet a while. He said the Sertraline were not quiet as strong. I'm on 50mg a day (1 tablet) and they work fine for me.

    Yes, I'm on 100mg. I was initially on citalopram, but switched to sertraline after a year because the citalopram had stopped working for me. I started off on 50mg and went up to my current 100mg after a fortnight.

    I've found the main side effects I have are tiredness, vivid dreams, night sweats. It doesn't make me naseous like citalopram did, and on citalopram I lost weight however on sertraline I have gained.

    sertraline was the first AD i took and i ended up taking 50mg in the end but it never worked for me. the only side effect i experienced was anxiety but that only lasted a a couple of days or so.

    i hope it works for you.
