I really expected Zoloft to feel similar to Celexa. At first I was heartened by an increase in sex drive and less obsessiveness.
Now after being on Zoloft 50mgs for three weeks I'm not so sure. I feel racy and aggitated yet despondent in the morning. I also feel like the Lamictal in my system has increased...filled with ideas and energy, light sensitivity and headaches, trouble focusing. I used to feel this effect before I lowered my lamictal dosage to 200mg/day.
I was on Celexa for 10 years and added lamictal 7 years ago. I don't know where to go from here. Celexa was the devil I know but I'm thrilled to be free of it's own side effects. But whatever I'm feeling now is pretty terrible. Doctor wants to put me on lithium. At this point I want off everything.
Any similar experiences? Please?
