Both the p-docs I've had said Zoloft can lose some of its "umph" after time. But,I was on it for almost six years before the doc added Wellbrutrin, which can "pump up" Zoloft. And that was for depression that the Zoloft (which I originally went on for Panic Disorder and some depression) apparently wasn't touching. I'm getting off Zoloft now not because it "doesn't work", but because I want to see if I can decrease or cut out some of my meds. Doc wants to cut down/out Zoloft first. I'm worried about panic, but so far I'm ok. Does this mean the Zoloft doesn't work anymore and the Wellbrurin is keeping depression and panic under control now? Or that I just don't it (and maybe not the Wellbruitrin) anymore? Or that the inderal is relaxing me? Or....who knows?

This is my way of saying don't get worried that the Zoloft, which you said really works for you, suddenly will quit--it wasn't like that for me at all, and anyway, we are all very different!

Listen, I am flying x-country this weekend. If I find myself trying to get out the emergency exit at 37,000 feet because I "need air", I guess that will end my attempt to decrease Zoloft!
