  1. So, I was extremely depressed in January after tapering off all my meds on my own (stupid). My doctor put me back on Wellbutrin, and we decided to try Prozac as an SSRI. The Prozac wasn't kicking in and I learned about the GeneSight genetic test for antidepressants. I asked for and had the task done. They never sent me a copy of the results. After a month on the Prozac and no help, I also asked to go up from 300mg Wellbutrin XL to 450mg, and that seemed to help. I had an appointment mid-April and was mostly feeling better. He decided to keep me where I was at. I forgot to ask about the Ge
  2. Anyone find Zoloft more motivating than Effexor? Any weight gain? (it made me insomniac with psychosis 20 years ago). But meds often act differently over time. I've already done trials (some multiple times) of: Prozac (lethargic), Celexa (fatigue/apathy), Lexapro (similar to prozac), Cymbalta (vigilance/restlessness legs, but dissociative mind/feeling), Wellbutrin (no effect), Trintillex (no effect), Remeron (sedating/+appetite), Notryptaline (don't recall), Abilify (++appetite, RLS), ..Doc won't RX MAOIs and says that TCAs typically more sedating effects. Basically, I don't want to
  3. Hey everyone. I’ve been in a bad way for 4 1/2 years when remeron stopped working for sleep and sudden onset OCD (ruminating thinking, intrusive thoughts, looping songs), treatment resistant insomnia, anxiety- stick in fight flight, panic, 24/7 derealization, brain fog and dizziness set in. Over time with symptoms not going away, depression set in. Obviously my meds were not working. I am on day 11 off Zoloft/remeron after a long taper. I and am wondering when these meds will completely be out of my system. Am I out of the woods yet? Or could withdrawal still jet hard? I’m hoping these
  4. I know that a lot of bipolar folks take an SSRI as part of their daily regimen of meds and apparently it seems to help. But there's some growing concern in the pdoc world now that SSRI's may be causing manic symptoms and even directly causing manic episodes. I was on SSRI's for 10 years before quitting last October. In chronological order: Celexa, Zoloft, Celexa again, Lexapro, Zoloft again, Prozac, Zoloft again briefly, back to Prozac to close it out. For me, personally, after stopping them altogether, I was able to see what they were doing to my system. I truly believe they made m
  5. Hey, I always seem to look up these threads when I'm doing coke and I figured I would sign up so I can get some advise. My fiancé and I do coke regularly on Friday and Saturday nights. We drink and just chill. I recently was out on lamotrigine for my mood disorder and anxiety and thay wasn't working so my dr also prescribed me on Zoloft since I was feeling super angry most of the time with just the lamo. Anyways, I've been freaking out with the mix of coke and all my meds. I take 200 mg lamo 50g 1 bar/pill Zoloft and xanax when my anxiety is crazy. Because I only do coke on weekends, how
  6. My pdoc suggested a trial of a med I tried 20+ years ago (Zoloft). It was the first med I was ever on. I was only about 18 and I had bad start-up side effects early on (anxiety, distress, restlessness, insomnia, flashbacks from previous trauma, etc) So I went off quite quickly, before 4 weeks. Fast forward 20 years after about 30 different meds & combos (none of which made me feel that way). She wants to trial this med again. Have you (or would you) do this? I'm kind of willing to try anything at this point bc too scared of ECT.
  7. I just increased my dose from 50 to 100 mg 10 days ago. Since then I am experiencing a lot of irritability and anger. Has anyone else had this as a side effect? Does i go away?
  8. Hi guys, Been on Zoloft for over a year. Just increased from 75 mg to 100 mg 8 days ago. My anxiety is through the roof. First 5 days after the increase was fine. No problem, then the anxiety skyrocket. Is this normal?
  9. Hi guys, I am suffering from Dystymia and SAD and have been taking Sertraline 50 - 75mg for over a year now. It helps with psychosomatic ailments and moderately attenuates the anxiety & fear. My problem with Sertraline is: It makes me an apathetic zombie, indifferent to life and very unmotivated. I have sleep disturbances, the sleep is unrestful. I've also lost quite a bit of weight and am more agitated. Besides that I have hot-flashes and palpitations on a regular basis. My pdoc said that I will have to live with the sides and that he can't do anything about it. He advised me that I
  10. Hi, I have been diagnosed with Depression and SAD. I've been on Zoloft (75mg) for 3 months now. It's okay for SAD, but it is very "numbing": I've never felt so amotivated, apathetic and indifferent. Zoloft also exacerbates my agitation. Is this normal? Will it become better? Thanks and greetings, Alfed
  11. Hi everyone, Just joined this forum, but I used to be a member of the old crazymeds site, which I found very helpful. I am a 44 year old male, and have been on a combo of Sertraline and Wellbutrin for close to five years now after a severe nervous breakdown. I recently decided to try weaning myself off the medication, mostly because I have never found my ability to concentrate has been quite as good since I went on the medication. What a mistake. I experienced crushing depression once I completely stopped, and went back on just the Wellbutrin to see if it would improve. It did
  12. I convinced my gdoc this morning to increase my dose of Zoloft from 150 to 200 mg. I'm already taking 175 mg actually. With each increase the RLS (restless legs, or feet and ankles in my case) gets worse. I'm supplementing with iron and it seems to help a little. Some one suggested magnesium as well, but this person doesn't know I'm on medication, so I don't know if magnesium will actually work for SSRI-induced restless legs. Other than de RLS I don't experience much from the Zoloft. I think it's working partially because in some situations these thoughts aren't as frequent and I can conc
  13. With Anxietyzone gone I'm hoping I can find some constructive feedback from you guys. I have panic disorder with agoraphobia, have been on Prozac, Lexapro and now Zoloft. All three have worked but eventually built tolerance. Would increase dose, achieve remission, poop out, be at max dose and have to switch to a new ssri. Currently dealing with a semi-breakdown. Can't drive over bridges, avoiding wide open spaces, having intense thoughts that I'm about to go crazy, lose control etc...the usual. To my question. pdoc instructed me to raise zoloft dose from 100 to 125. I'm hesitant ma
  14. Hi All- I endured neglect / abuse from my biological mother from the ages of 0-4...so yeah, I have issues. One of my biggest is anxiety in relationships. I have an amazing boyfriend who I KNOW I can trust deep down. However, I still have anxiety, panic attacks and turn into a mess when he does something as simple as go out with friends. I know this is so irrational, and I have nothing to worry about (except my irrationality driving him away). I just want to be "normal" and say "bye, have a great time" and just hang out at home, get a hobby, etc. But I find myself sitting here paranoid and
  15. Hi! Today is my 28th day on sertraline. I have titrated up to 100 mg. I know these meds can take up to 6 weeks to work. Luvox worked for me with 5 weeks on 150 mg and I think I have been on 200mg as well. It pooped out so my second ssri was Lexapro, which kicked in faster at 3 weeks ( at 10 mg). After 6 years this one pooped out as well. Last May, when the poop out happened, my general doctor was pushing new therapy and didn't switch me to another ssri, which I did not really like. He did increase Lexapro to 15 mg but after 4 weeks things were still the same and started the therapy a
  16. I went inpatient back in June and the doctor there added depakote er 1000mg to my regimen along with rexulti 2mg to go with the zoloft 100mg, and topamax 100mg twice a day that I was taking. It was working wonders. I was finally stable. I was also very sleepy. My original pdoc said if depakote er at 1000mg made me too sleepy then to try it at 500mg or one tablet at bedtime. I have been scared to do that because it was working so well! But, I was sleeping all day and all night also. This week, i decided to take my pdoc suggestion and try it at 500mg at bedtime. I am a little more awake bu
  17. I took Anafranil for 10 years and it pooped out one year ago. I took Buspar and Vistaril for 6 months. I found an amazing psych dr and she did a genetic test and I matched with Zoloft. Also it said I had a MTHFR gene mutation. So, I started eating high folate diet, seeing the psych every two weeks, and I started taking liquid Zoloft. Started at 5mg and went up 1 milligram every two days until I hit 25. It worked amazingly! Worked like it is supposed to. She and I decided it needed increase again due to breakthrough OCD symptoms. So I took about a month to go to 37.5. Been there a month now. So
  18. Hello, everybody. I just wanted to post this thread out of curiosity for those of you who have taken Zoloft or Sertraline HCl before. I've been on it for about 5 years now, started at 100mg after titrating up to it for a month or two, and stuck to that for 2 years. After 2 years, I had an episode of anorexia that landed me IP where I was diagnosed with obsessive compulsive personality disorder, and was titrated to 250mg daily at the end of my stay. After leaving, I kept it at 250 with my pdoc, but we decided to go down on it since neither of us thought the dose was having a clinically sign
  19. Hello, I have been having issues for the last 15 years or so, and I am 29 now. I started with a Dx of MD and I was loaded with a deep depression, rage, and anger. Self-loathing, despair yada yada. Anyways, after a while it progresses due to life. November last year I speak with my pcp and break down in tears because I can no longer handle my life. I was not suicidal, yet, but more than overwhelmed to the point I was beginning to worry I might hurt one of my children without realizing it. Action before thought... he put me on risperdal. It worked like a dream after I adjusted. Not fu
  20. Hi there! Please help! I saw my dr yesterday. I am currently on 100mg trazodone and half a sleeping tablet at night for post partum depression ? It led me to have terrible panic attacks, insomnia and a constant feeling of being very down. I asked my dr to switch me to a newer medication. He gave me 50mg Serdep to take at night. I think it is s generic version of Zoloft. I took it just before I got into bed. I couldn't fall asleep and within 2 hours it felt like my throat and stomach was on fire! It hurt so much, and I was so nauseous. I thought I was going to end up in the ER. Has this ha
  21. has anyone experienced this? its been linked to paxil and zoloft. i'm not sure whether zoloft caused this issue for me or just worsened it to the point that it became noticeable to myself and others (didn't seem to have this prior to taking zoloft for the first time and the condition persisted off zoloft for years.. on zoloft again and i think the problem might be enhanced but i can't say that for any certainty). i've looked into it and its never specified whether the problem persisted after stopping the meds or whether it can be a permanent thing.
  22. I was just prescribed Welbutrin for depression and ADHD. I am only 17 years old and am already showing signs of having an addictive personality. I had illegally been buying adderal pills off friends at school to help motivate me to do homework and get good grades. It worked. I had been making AMAZING grades, and not only that, but I felt like a happy person due to its euphoric side effect of amphetimine as well. At first, I would only take 10 mg every once in awhile like if I had a test or just a lot homework I needed to get done. Then it turned into taking 10mg everyday, slowly turning into t
  23. Interested in thoughts about my situation. I'm currently depressed - no question. Can't concentrate, can't stay awake, kind of hate the world and myself especially. This is coming after a couple of years of generally ok feelings when I thought I had the whole depression thing sorted, which followed a few years which were bad. During the first phase, one physchiatrist put me on Lamictal on the basis I might have mild hypomania. I'm not really sure the Lamictal did anything, and in any case a subsequent pshychiatrist simply said I was a bit 'narcissistic' (which itself made me depressed to
  24. Hello everyone, I'm new to this site and from what I've read it's been a total support system. I wanted to pick the brains of some of you other members. I have recently found out that I suffer from depression. I was dx, with anxiety 5 years ago and have been on zoloft off and on since then. Well I was just put on Welbutrin 150mg 5 days ago and abilify 2mg yesterday. I must say I feel better but I want to get the opinion of others that have taken this combination. I'm not 100% but getting better. What time of day do you take your medication? How do you like it? Any input bad or good is welcome
  25. Hey. I've never posted before, but here it goes. I have been on Lexapro for 10 years. I'm on 20 mg. Apparently it has pooped out on me and doc are going to try Zoloft, which I was on as a teen (I am now 33). We are doing a cross taper. I have MDD and panic disorder. I'm terrified of cross tapering, but know I can't wean and start another. I go nuts and I have to work full time and support a family. I need positive words about cross tapering because everything I read is scary as hell. Terrified of serotonin syndrome.
