In reply to Zoloft?, posted by Christine on January 6, 1999, at 20:16:15

> I was wondering if anyone could tell me about this drug? I was prescribed b ecause i'm suffering from extreme anxiety attacks and nervousness. I have been like this for about 6 weeks, since being prescribed The Pill. How long does it take to work? and when should I start feeling better? I'm not even going out, for fear of having anxiety attacks. which occur even when i'm home.

I have been on and off Zoloft for the last 5 years. Here are my experiences

1st Time .. Condition Suicidal and in Hospital ( BPD and Depression )
Dose 300 MG's ..Very Shaky, nervous, happy, able to have fun, not able to ejaculate.
took Clonazopeam (lots) to take the edge off the Zoloft. Have had more suicide attempts on Zoloft
than any other drug or no drugs at all. Decreased dose to 200 MG's a day ejaculation back to normal,
not as shaky and not as happy.

Went of all meds after almost crocking from barbituates.
Off all meds for 3 years.
Deppression gone somewhat no suicide attempts in 3 years. Cutting myself more than ever
Decided to go back on Zoloft.

Reason for going back on Zoloft.

1 It has little side effects, for me.
2 I have been in house for all of those 3 years while not medicated.
3 Suicide seems to have vanished from my thoughts.
4 A genuine desire and effort to stop cutting myself.
5 A desire to function and laugh like normal people.
6 A desire to be with people.

I have just started this drug again for one week and am logging everything daily
so anyone who wants to can be informed of the results. I have to monitor this because of the fear of suicide as in the past Zoloft breeds
this in me.

My opinion.. Do not take Zoloft if you are still dealing with suicidal thoughts. Get
that mind to slow down first because Zoloft will increase the good and bad thoughts.
If your mind is racing it will race faster on Zoloft so if the thoughts are bad then look out they will not get better on Zoloft until you
at least stableize yourself. I truly believe that Zoloft and a suicidal person do not mix.

However now, emotionaly more stable I believe Zoloft will work for me and increase the desire
to relax, go with the flow and get the hell out of this prison I have lived in for 3 years.

Now some of you may not like this but for people with BPD when you get angry and confused
there is one thing that works for me everytime and that is some good BUD.
I can be angry and freeking out of my mind 4 or 5 pulls later I am calm and happy and no threat to myself.
Now I said pulls not pills.

I can tell when someone is on a dose of Zoloft over 150 MG's there is no doubt a hi associated with Zoloft.
The drug amplifies the negative and positive thoughts.
In a drug report I read that you never give Zoloft to a suicidal patient. "Figure that out"
