> Hello anyone. I'm currently taking Zoloft for depression, but now I'm concerned about what it could do to me since I've been reading some scary stories. A few years ago a doctor treated me with what he diagnosed as Bipolar 2, using Lithium.
> I stopped when he retired. Are drugs really effective in this area, or is it better to look into natural, non-side-effect alternatives? I don't want to become a loony when my body starts to get tired of Zoloft. Any comments?

I was also taking zoloft for depression, but it made me a little too euphoric (manic) and I was put back on lithium which was exactly what I needed. During most of my battles with my mood disorder I've come to the realization that the meds keep my mind at bay. It's kind of like my mind is full of zoo animals and the drugs are the keys to the cages that keep them safely locked away. So, most of the time I don't worry because I have a real good security least so far, anyway.
