Pat: Re: Wellbutrin instead of Zoloft

Hi Pat. I just read your 8/13 response. I'm glad I had something helpful to say. About my depression: I really never started zoloft for classical depression: sadness, low energy, etc. I have suffered pretty severe, irratic PMS since my third pregnancy. I started working with a nutritionist, and for the first time building regular, rigorous exercise into my life style.

I'm no faithful health nut, but I know now what foods set off a reaction, and I don't totally freak out at every symptom. My PMS used to last at times for 17 days, debilitate me, and I have subtle suicidal feelings. Lots of great counseling, some really good bible studies, and better health helped alot. But at a certain time last year, it wasn't enough, and said enough is enough. I have a marriage and family to help keep together here.

So I caved in and went to the doc. I have not tried any other SSRI's or combos of drugs. I am usually low tolerant to any meds, and side effects have been strong. Unlike you, I never tried a sleeping aid. I'd just get out of bed, enjoy getting stuff done that never gets done with three screaming boys around, and napped the next day if I needed. Worst case scenario, four hours of sleep and a couple cups of coffee, and I'm set to go. I'm lucky that way.

Write again. I don't want to ramble to much!
