8 months on Zoloft

Posted by msurtees on July 23, 2004, at 15:16:02


Just in case anyone might be thinking of starting Zoloft, I figured I'd share my experience briefly.

Before: depressed almost always over silly/dumb stuff. Sad. CONSTANTLY worrying even when nothing to worry about. Insomnia...panic attacks. All kinds of fun stuff.

After: depressed rarely and then only a little. Don't really worry about things anymore. No more panic attacks...but there is the occasional high-strung feeling for which I'll take a lorazepam.

The positives I've already noted. The negatives: I've gained about 20 friggin pounds! Yech. Although there's no real heavy sadness anymore, there's no real heavy happiness or highs either. If I'm not sad, then I'm only even-keeled. If I do get angry about something, I get real angry...nothing serious or dangerous, just more agitated than I used to. Finally: there are days when I'm VERY sleepy.

SO: in the end...Zoloft saved my sanity and I love it. All drugs have some minuses but, for me, they are more than worth it. I can't believe the difference from how I was I feel like I'm living again.

I take 150mgs per day in the evening.

Take care everyone,
