Trust what your doctor is doing for you. Zoloft can take a while to kick in. If you're not sure about that, search the rest of the forums. It may seem hard to believe now, but it really will get better. When I started taking it, everything was significantly worse for the first week and then it started doing its job. In fact, I'm 4 months in and still getting better. Doses can continue to be effective even through 6 months. Don't give up on it yet. See it through! Also, he may be having you on a small dose because it does have that rough starting period. It's just the way it works.
