Change From Citalopram 25mg To Sertraline 50mg

I'm 35 years old and have been on citalopram (10 to 25mg) for about 13 years. It has helped me in general but never stopped my panic attacks completely. When I had a bad time I had to increase my tablets which always made me feel worse before better. What I find is that I feel emotionally numb. I don't get excited about things like for ex going on holiday. Instead I see it as a hurdle like I have to spend hrs on a plane which I really dislike, what if people are going to be loud, moving my seat... And what if I feel totally awful whilst I'm there... That kind of thing. I start shaking, freaking out, vomiting, can't eat, function, terrified.... I saw a doctor a while back who said that she didn't think this medication was working for me anymore and that it could be normal as I've been on them for so long. It is now affecting my relationship as my other half always says I'm not happy or if I am I'm not showing it. Anyway, I decided to see my GP yesterday who told me to try sertraline. However, i have been on 25mg of citalopram for the last 5 months and have not had any severe panic/anxiety attacks but I can tell that it's still there waiting to erupt. Now, I am petrified to change my med!! What if I'm gonna feel worse or awful like I did last year! anyone here changed cit for sertraline after a long time? Am I gonna get withdrawal symptoms from cit before I get used to sertraline?? If you have been through it I would be very grateful if you could tell me how it went... I just want to be happy and live life to the fullest. I feel I haven't been able to in the last 15 years. I'm supposed to take my last citalopram tonight and go straight to sertraline tomorrow.

Sertraline :: Side Effects Of Increasing Dose?

I'm about to increase my sertraline dosage. The side effects in the first few weeks when I started were pretty bad and I felt really rough at times, mainly with nausea, dizziness etc. I was wondering: will this happen again on increasing the dosage? Or should it be OK now my body is used to the drug? If it's likely I'll get some side effects, how long are they likely to last and how bad might they be?

Sertraline :: Dose And Effects Of Alcohol?

After several years of on-off depression and anxiety I finally decided to try medication.

I started on 50mg Sertraline about 8 weeks ago. After a few days of horrible physical side effects I started to feel great. But in the last week I have started to feel not-so-great again. This could be due to a week away where I consumed a fair bit of alcohol and cannabis (after being very sensible since starting the Sertraline).

I'm thinking of asking my doctor to up the dose to 100mg.

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced Sertraline "wearing off" after a few months, or being affected by alcohol?

Sertraline :: Advice On Stopping Sertraline

I had some terrible problems last november stopping venlafaxine to start sertraline.  I realised I have tried over 6 different meds and have decided to get back to the start and take none.  I have been to a doctor today who was not very helpful and as I have never been given the right advice about cross tapering I am not confident about stopping.  I started with 50mg, 1 december 2014, in mid January increased to 100mg and to be honest things are worse in the way I feel.  No libido (I am a happily married 46 year old woman who used to enjoy my husbands attention), No motivation, No sense of enjoyment in anything, overeating, overspending and little or no self worth.  I have been told stop 100mg and take 50mg for 4 weeks and then review.  I am thinking maybe 75mg for a week, then 50mg for a week, then 25mg for a week then nothing....  Any ideas?  I have been on one antidepressant or another since 2009.
