A Little Medication Update

I went to the doctors on Tuesday to talk about weaning myself off Sertraline.  She explained that as I’m on such a low dose (50mg) anyway there aren’t any specific guidelines about coming off them.  We decided that I would try and split the pills in half and start taking half a day.

I’ve been taking half for 3 days now and haven’t noticed any changes although I know it’s early days yet.  The doctor advised that I do this for at least 2 weeks and then I can come off them completely.  I’ll see how the next couple of weeks go and I’ll decide then if I feel ready to come off them.

I’ll do another post in a couple of weeks and update you on how I’m feeling and whether I’ve decided to stop altogether.  Keep your fingers crossed for me!

  1. You may only feel any difference after 3-4 weeks, and it’s sometimes a nerve wrecking thing to think you’re ‘going it alone’ as such without your meds, but hopefully you’ll be ready to go forward without, don’t beat yourself up though if you find it too hard and find that you’re not ready, you’ll know when you are 🙂
