Zoloft a drug prescribed in so many western societies to deal with a range of health issues particularly depression and anxiety. Zoloft for me is not what I expected. I thought I’d feel happier, I do in a way but I don’t feel any less sad or miserable. I know I should kill myself but I can’t Zoloft has taken that from me. So now I’m stuck in a mood where nothing truly matters, I should give up. So tired…..
It sounds like Zoloft is making you numb-nothing matters at all, not happiness or sadness. It did the same to me. I couldn’t cry on it, even if you had told me that my kids died in a firey car crash, I wouldn’t have felt a thing.
Talk with your doctor, there are other drugs that do work. Often I’ve heard that if Zoloft isn’t for you, Celexa or Lexapro should work fine and vice versa. Celexa is the cheaper option, but both are very similar.
Yes that pretty much covers it all. You’re right il talk to my gp about changing. Not sure what she’ll recommend though
It’s also possible that you might benefit from talking to a psychiatrist regularly. A combination of medication and therapy are supposedly the most successful ways to get out of depression; the meds won’t usually do all the work themselves.
Of course, maybe that won’t work or you’ve already tried it. Just a suggestion.
I’m seeing a psychiatrist next week hopefully things will get better than just feeling numb.
I take zoloft, and yeah its just a numbing but sometimes thats what I need to get me through the day. I dont really know of any happy pills
I wish it helped me through the day but it doesn’t
