Hi everyone I have been prescribed 50mg of sertraline for anxiety and depression. However after reading many forums of individual experiences I am wary of taking this dose. I took it upon my own initiative to half the tablet as I have read many negative experiences around 50mg, mainly bad side effects. I know 50mg is the therapeutic dose but I do not want to be 'spaced' out and unable to attend university or go to work where I am required to drive. Currently I am feeling no side effects but this is very early days. I am in two minds whether to continue with 25mg or throw myself into 50mg and ride out the storm.
