Hi, I am suffering from anxiety and some low mood.
I was previously on Setraline 50mg for a year and it was tapered down and eventually stopped as I was feeling much better in myself. This was about 6 months ago.
The symptoms are currently back. Lots of anxiety and some low mood, but I am not suicidal or anything like that. Would re-starting Setraline be a good idea
