how has starting medication affected your emotions and overall mental health? I started zoloft and my emotions were everywhere.

      I tried zoloft and it made me go psycho. I ended up going into a mental hospital because it made me so suicidal that my support system couldn't handle me and they even told me it wasn't helping. And then I ran away from my friends house without my diabetes meds.

      It takes a few weeks for everything to balance out. It can be hell during that time, but chin up. The results afterward are often worth it. If the imbalances last more than 3 weeks, or you fear self-harm of any kind, you should talk to your doctor.

      Starting medications can make emotions go crazy. I always ask for something to help with breakthrough anxiety to get through the first few weeks. It will level out and get better.

      I tried Zoloft at two separate points in time. Both times, I was taking it alongside Abilify. The first time, the combination worked wonders. I don’t remember why I stopped Zoloft, but I continued with Abilify, which did a pretty good job by itself. When I added Zoloft back in a few years later, it was as if I was taking a sedative. My emotions at this point were almost unaffected compared to the Abilify standalone regimen, but I was constantly in a state of extreme drowsiness, and it was clearly the Zoloft. I can’t say what you should try for you: everyone is affected differently and even the same person may see different results at different points in time. Find something that works just okay for you, and change your habits to things that naturally elevate and regulate mood, energy, and mental clarity. This will greatly improve the efficacy of whatever it is you’re taking.
