  • Previously taken other anti depressants, citilipram, venlafaxine over the years sine a brain bleed 18 years ago. Changed in December to sertraline and my asthma has been out of control since this time. Asthma is normally well controlled. Steroids normally help, but don't seem to be helping, now on second reducing course, following two other week long courses of prednisolone.
