    I'm only on 50mg of Zoloft.. That seems so low now that I've seen everyone else's replies. It has made a huge difference in the way I feel.
    Like MiM said, it has given my life back. I'm not as snappy, I can smile and not let the smallest of things get to me = ) The only crap thing is that if I forget to take them for a day or two, I start getting headaches, nausea and stomach aches.

    I was on 50mg of Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) and it saved my life.
    Hell for 3 months coming off it, but I have never regretted taking it

    I've been holding steady on 40mg of Cipramil for 2 years now!! Started at 20mg when I was 24 weeks pregnant with DS I also have Xanax in my arsenal in case of a fully fledged panic attack. I also have some temazepam which is a sleeping table that I take very occasionally....

    I'm on Lorazepam and Seroquel. As I've just given birth, I have a follow up next week. Perhaps I'll be offered anti-depressants then? I wasn't offered them in the preceding weeks due to pregnancy. Given some of the posts I've read they seem to be working for you. Perhaps it's something I should consider.

    This is what I'm on, is it worse than others to get off?

    Just an update. Only on Zoloft now. No other meds. Things are looking good.

    The only crap thing is that if I forget to take them for a day or two, I start getting headaches, nausea and stomach aches.
    I have been warned about this. It's the drug's affect on the body as opposed to the depression. When I want to wean I have to do so under supervision apparently.

    But hey, that's a long way off yet. I'm just glad that I can feel normal again.
