I was diagnosed with pnd 3 weeks ago, and have been taking Zoloft since. I was feeling really good up until today.
all those thought and feelings I was having before are back. I hate it.
is it normal to still have bad days ON meds?

The same thing happened to me (I'm on effexor) I was feeling great for weeks & then all of a sudden i was back to feeling like I had before I went on medication My doctor increased my dose & after a week I felt better than ever & that was months ago & so far so good - but even now I still have bad days which is normal apparently - I think it's just about finding the right dose for you
Hope your feeling better soon

Yes it can take a while to find the right dose. I've been taking Zoloft for 2 months now. I've booked an appointment with the gp for next week cos I feel I've plateaued a bit. I felt much better for a few weeks but I'm sliding back a bit now, not as bad as I was but not as good as I would like to be. I have heard others say exactly what you have said, that's it's a complete reversal. My gp told me to watch for it, she said it takes a while for the neurotransmitters to come up to normal levels. I would say go back to your gp and have a chat, good luck!

Yep. DH is currently on ADs (obviously not for PND though lol) but some days are good and some days are bad. It can take time for them to build up in your system and sometimes you just plain have to get your doc to check out your levels and make sure that you're on the right amount.

thank you all so much for your replies.
I have an appointment with my gp on Monday to review how I'm going which was booked after my dx, but after having 2 panic attacks in my kitchen I thought it was a but strange, especially because I've been feeling so good.
hugs to those with pnd too. and eko, sorry to hear about your dh x

It usually takes a few weeks for antidepressants to start working. In my experience with Zoloft, I got much worse, not better. If you feel that you are still having depressive/ suicidal thoughts you should go back to the doctor as they may need to adjust the dose or try a different medication. Hope you feel better soon xx
