VIDEO: Taking Sertraline

I’ve taken quite a few different medications, but the main one that I’ve been on is Sertraline.

At first it was a strange concept to put something into my body that I’d never had before, which was something that was going to have to be long term, it wasn't a quick, easy fix, and that seemed quite daunting to me.

It did help to regulate my mood, but on the negative side I had quite bad insomnia from it, and headaches, like kind of thing.

I had a look online, but a lot of things were quite contradictory, and nothing was tailored towards young people, it was all older people that had been on it for a long time.
