I think I'm experiencing the same thing. Zoloft works great
for a long time, but for the last year or so,
the pervasive anhedonia/sadness was replaced by strong mood
swings, awful feelings of agitation and social withdrawal.
My current
doc (a GP) who I've only known a short time
recommended that I raise the dose, but it seems
to be making matters worse. I gave it a month's trial
at the higher dosage, but its interfering with
my life so much that I think its foolish to

I am sorry your doctor isn't being more supportive
and understanding; I also think that his advice that you
should not read up on matters relating to your
condition is bad and makes him seem a bit arrogant
and condescending -- sorry, but no one has
the right answers all of the time, and if he can't deal
with your input, it sounds like he has a bit of
an ego/power problem that may interfere with his
treatment of patients! I think your research shows
that you are actively interested in improving your
health, which one would think a doctor would like to
see in a patient! If he has a good reason to
be recommending the present course, as a scientist
he ought to have criteria and a timeline to judge
whether its actually working for you or not. If
you feel its not working, and he is not responsive
then its time to talk to another doctor.

Good luck!
