      I LOVED Zoloft. It made me not give a crap but in a good way lol I wasn't a zombie I was just more even and able to deal. It cured my pms. I only went off of it because it made losing weight impossible.

      I've been on zoloft! I had to switch to Lexapro though because zoloft was throwing me into panic attacks really bad.

      I'm on the same meds but it's more the organic version for different reasons it works so far when I first started taking it but I guess it also depends on the person but for me since my body got used to it I had to either up my dosage or decrease depending on how it was affecting me.

      I’m on cymbala now because the other medication interferes with my epilepsy medication I’m on

      I was thinking about trying it and was wondering what kind of side effects there are.

      I've been on Zoloft for years (now on a generic version called sertraline) and it does have some adverse side effects like dry mouth, fatigue, and trouble falling and staying asleep. For me however, maybe because I've been on it for so long, it isn't working as well as it did in the beginning for me. Now it's more I'm either normal or depressed. I do still have bouts of happiness and joy but it's more just feeling normal/bleh. It could also be because I have BPD as well as MDD but mostly Zoloft just causes me to feel super tired during the day (and causes me to yawn a lot) and causes me to have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. I also have muscle twitches (not extreme unless I am under a large amount of stress)

      I was on it 1 week awful side effects dry mouth jaw clenching felt numb and irritable I’ve gone on HRT amazing so for me my symptoms were repaired to menopause being an older lady and it’s helped so much it’s hard to get antidepressants to feel ok but if you feel numb may be try a different one like Citroplain x

      I was on it for a year and a half and it went rather well. It made me feel less depressed and more motivated, but also more numb. I’ve went off it recently and that’s also going well. As with similar antidepressants, it may take 4-6 weeks to have effect. Try to record what side effects you have. If they are serious contact your provider about whether you should continue. Otherwise, you tolerate them for like two weeks to see if they get better. Everyone is different and I hope this one works out for you 💕

      Zoloft is sertraline in the UK and honestly I love it. It's helped me a lot

      So now my doctor put me on another medication because the one I started taking wasn’t good

      I really like it so far! I've been on a lot of other medications that didn't help me much, but Zoloft has been a dream. It's been helping a lot with my anxiety, too.
