    Default zoloft, someone please?

    Hi ladies.
    i have been taking it for a week and a half.
    first four days was 25mg and fifth day and everyday after 50mg.
    im on about day 18 and i know it takes around 4 weeks to take full effect.
    ... but ... when i started taking the 50mg i felt great. started to cope and deal with things better. but today just seemed different.
    like it wasn't working 100% Maybe i was just having a bad day.
    but i was just wondering about dosage etc. if someone could shed a Lil light for me please?
    i will wait the full month to see if things change and how i adjust, but if things get worse, i will need to up my dose? or change meds?
    and how does it effect your sleep? i wake quite often and its exhausting the next day (i have 3 LO under 6yo)
    TIA.

    In the first few weeks on any meds it's normal to feel up and down. If it's really bad, like worse than when you weren't taking it, go see your Dr asap. If it's just a down day, but nowhere near as bad as before, try ride it out. See how you go tomorrow. Try journal your emotions (something I learnt from dbt) and see if there is a pattern... Could be from where you are in your cycle, to something as trivial as the moon. Lol.

    Hope that helps to put your mind at ease. If you want an understanding ear, pm me. Good luck tomorrow

    It really is too early to tell yet. It actually can take a good 6 months to feel "normal" and have the meds regulate in your system. Hang in there

    Big hugs. I've been on it for 6 weeks now & after the first week felt amazing, like I should of gone & got it a lot sooner and that things really were looking so much better. Since then though I feel like it's not working at all. I spoke to my Dr & he said to allow 6 weeks to see a real improvement, really hoping it kicks in soon. I too find mornings to be when I am the saddest :-(

    Hope ur day gets better x

    Forgot to mention, I have a follow up next week to review my meds & Dr did mention that its totally normal to swap meds until you find the right one.

    This happened to me on lexapro. I felt good at first then it just seemed to stop having any real affect after a while. The dosage was increased but that made no difference. So i've tried a few others and ended up on zoloft.
    Maybe zoloft isn't the right one for you? Unfortunately a lot of trial and error is often needed when finding the anti-depressant that is right for you.

    It's normal to feel up and down in the beginning...it takes a while for them to work properly. You might need an increase in dose (50mg is too low for me, might be the same for you), but I would wait a few more weeks. Maybe talk to your doctor?
