Zoloft - No other drugs left??!

Posted by Keeta Orenda on July 15, 2005, at 19:22:08

I saw my doc yesterday & he gave me some samples of Zoloft. I began 25mg this morning. So far, no side effects or any "feeling" of having begun a new drug. I also take 30mg Adderall XR.

I'm frustrated cause he (and another doctor awhile back) said that I'd taken all the medicines & there was nothing left.

That can't possibly be true!!!! I've not taken TONS of drugs I see in these very forums. Here's a list of the drugs I've tried & that either never worked or stopped working after awhile:

Pamelor-Worked for a bit
Wellbutrin-Numbed me & then grew a rash
Effexor-Worked for the longest time but side effects & extreme sleepiness made me finally quit it!
Cymbalta-Just tried this..was a zombie 1 weekend & then quit it.

So, diagnosis is Depression & Add-Inattentive. I have some anxiety. I'm a classic couch potato & don't have any energy to motivate myself to do anything!

Anyhow, not sure what I'm asking....just trying to get established in this community & open a dialogue. I don't know if this Zoloft is right for me as it's also another SSRI and those haven't worked for me at all.

I really don't know WHY I've been told by 2 different doctors, "You've tried nearly everything." Do you suppose they are simply referring to drugs that ONLY treat depression? Maybe, all these other drugs aren't for folks who "only" have a diagnosis of depression?

Thanks for any feedback. :-)
