Sertraline and Running

Hi Everyone,

I'm new here, so hi! I was just wondering if anybody has any experience with taking Sertraline alongside their running training and whether or not you found any problems with it.

I've been taking it for about 5 weeks and feel pretty tired a lot. I'm worried that it makes running harder. I don't want to stop taking it because it's made me feel better mentally - I'm less anxious and obsessive, and I eat normal amounts now (I was what you'd call an 'exercise bulimic').

Anybody had any experiences?

Thanks :)


  • Hello!
    Antidepressants & Training thread - try posting on there, someone will probabl have taken it.
    I haven't taken sertraline but have been on a few antidepressants - mostly the first few weeks on them are not so much fun, but after that the side-effects will settle down & they will start helping with the depression more, so do try & stick with it for a while :)
    Glad you've found something that works - & good luck.
  • Thanks. I'm definitely going to stick with it because I've had four years of feeling rubbish!
