      I’ve been on 200mg for a few months. It has helped me a lot with anxiety. I can actually get through the day without having a panic attack. It doesn’t help with my depression.

      Zoloft made me so exhausted that I actually fell asleep in the middle of the grocery store, leaning on the cart. It's funny now but at the time I was very worried. So I only took it one time. Drowsiness is apparently a common effect.

      I've been on it for ages. I like it.

      I’m on 150 now and it hasn’t done anything for me. Very upset about that. I’m hoping my psychiatrist has a plan. I have heard it being great for many people though. So don’t give up.

        @Deathfuffy you might want to ask your doc for Buspar to help the Zoloft work better.

      I've been on it for 10 years. My psychiatrist put me on it for post-partum anxiety (I think it bordered on pp psychosis, it was BAD). It has been overwhelmingly helpful for me. Finding the right anxiety/depression med is an art, not a science. My mom takes Paxil and it didn't help me at all. I was put on Wellbutrin and that was horrific. Sometimes it takes a few tries to find the right med. I hope that sertraline works for you! ❤️

      Sertraline is Zoloft in generic form it should work the same way as name brand

      I've been on Zoloft for 7 years, maxed out my dose about two years ago. It's helpful until it's not. When I first started it, I felt like I was uncomfortably hyper. My mom had to break the news to me that what I was actually experiencing was a normal energy level. Unfortunately I did get the rare insomnia side effect rather than drowsiness, which we did not know was possible until day 5 of not sleeping after starting at 25mg, so I cut my dose in half and started taking it in the mornings. It's definitely one of those things where you don't notice how well it's working until you don't have it anymore, and then you realize it REALLY worked and that SSRI withdrawal is miserable

      I've been on it for about 10 years. Started at 50mg and now on 100mg.

      Yes, I have taken a bunch of different medications and this works best for me. I'm a combination of anxiety, depression, and OCD.

      I’m on 200 mg. Not helping much at all esp with anxiety.

      I do, I'm at 150ml, I think it's a good med, some of them can be really harsh on your stomach or have side effects but I haven't noticed any so I give it a 👍

      Yes it helps me with my depression mostly and im also talking Buspar for my anxiety and it seems to be helping aswell

    • Puffin_ky_81

      Yes, currently on 150 mg a day. I am able to function pretty well with it. I do need therapy to help with my thought processes though.
