I have had anxiety attacks. They are very unpleasant and I have no control on when I get them

I had ocd for 7 years and was getting better until in the past 6 months I have had anxiety attacks once a month. I have been on 100mg of sertraline for 4 months, they don t do much and give me very vivid dreams. They are very unpleasant and I have no control on when I get them and I don t know what to do about them anymore

Thanks for the query
There actually no question in the query u have asked. did u abruptly stop sertaline? sertaline is a ssri and one of the adverse effects is something called discontinuation syndrome where u get vivid dreams after you discontinue it.
Talk to your psychiatrist for a change of [rescription if u r uncomdratble with sertaline.
Have a nice day
