Yes: First, if you feel you may be in danger, go to an er immediately. If not, see the doctor who prescribed the sertraline asap. Unfortunately, every med does not work for everyone. It may be time for a dose or med change. Also, consider seeing a counselor as this can help too. In addition, exercise, a healthy diet and light therapy may help. Don't just do nothing! why suffer? Also, if you're 24 or younger, there is a slight possibility that the sertraline is making you feel worse. Again, see your doctor.

Nothing terrible: Sedation is #1 but it's milder than its cousin clonidine. Intuniv is a form of Guanfacine which originally was a blood pressure med. This means it can lower blood pressure and possibly cause dizziness or even a fall. Occasionally, a kid will get constipated.

A few things: Red flags include poor eye contact, speech delays, not seeking comfort if scared or hurt, not liking to be held, odd movements that are symmetric on the left and right side of the body, and little interest in social interactions.
