    Default zoloft, someone please?

    Hang in there!! I was in a really bad place when I started zoloft, the first week I took it I felt amazing! Then all the side effects kicked in, I felt very depressed, anxious, emotional and my OCD worsened. I wasn't sleeping, I felt sick. After about 4 weeks I started having more good days, but still like an emotional roller coaster. Anyway, after 8 weeks now I feel so so much better (I'm taking it for OCD but had moderate depression as well). Now my depression is gone, OCd about 80% gone. I'm on 150mg but could possibly go up to 200mg. Some people need a much higher dose as their serotonin levels are way out of wack. I considered quitting so many times in the first few weeks but I'm so glad I stuck it out!! Oh and my sleep is back to normal too, my only side effect left is lowered libido which is common unfortunately. Good luck and try and stay strong!

    I was prescribed seroquel for sleep but I was too scared to take it, I still have a whole $50 pack in my cupboard unopened! At least it's there if I need it. I used xanax to get me through which I loved but I can totally see how it could be addictive!!

    Default Re: zoloft, someone please?

    Please be careful asking for certain meds. Seroquel is NOT a sleeping tablet. It is an anti psychotic used to treat depression and bipolar. It is also used to sedate patients whilst they are coming off illicit drugs while in hospital! Ask if there is a sleeping tablet you can take instead. Please please please be careful. I'm not saying this to scare anyone, but to let them know the truth of the drug as I have seen it. I doubt they would put you on both Zoloft and seroquel just because you aren't sleeping. As I said, ask about sleeping tablets instead when you talk to your Dr next

    Just mention to your dr, you are not sleeping and they will find something suitable for you
