Advice & Tips: I found that taking Sertraline was much more effective than any other Anti Depressants i have taken. My reason for stopping was to try and ascertain whether or not it was causing another Medical disorder, NIGHT SWEATING. IF the Night Sweating persists without the Sertraline i will probably go back to Sertraline
