I'm not trying to scare u and I'm not trying to post stuff negative I know I'm support to help people by ive seen commercials about Zoloft that are not that great but idk how it would effect u I mean I'm not really sure most meds effect people in many different ways I would try getting something else
from my experiences with anti depressants they seem to take 4-6 weeks to start working and i had a few side effects , but for some people from what i've heard they can send them manic , and i'm actually in the same boat at the moment with zoloft 100mg i been on for close to 2 months now along with seroquel xr 600mg but my psychiatrist has cut the zoloft down to 50 mg because of the mania i've been experiencing the last week or so , just keep in mind though that meds effect everyone different . If you have any problems with zoloft be sure to tell your doctor . good luck .
Yea they have me on 50mg of zoloft and I have been doin some research myself and everythin I have read is the same thing you had said but my doctor wont do anythin until I go see him the 4th of December so I am stuck until then
It can cause people with bipolar to go manic. If you are not on a mood stabilizer too I would suggest you get on one. Most doctors wont even prescribe an antidepressant without one for people who are bipolar.
zoloft/sertraline is an SSRI that can cause mania to bipolars.
Rule no 1 don't ever take any antidepressant except associated with a mood stabilizer or an antipsychotic. If your doctor put you on zoloft alone and he said you have bipolar disorder, then I am afraid you should check his degree. I am SURE he is is not a doctor at all, let alone pdoc.
Zoloft is one of the strong SSRI of course effexor is worse especially in withdrawals but zoloft is also bad. It's only 10 years old. My grandmother used to take it before she died. It's good for elderly but not for young people (i just guess). You can take cipram another SSRI weaker if you live in the states the country of prozac try prozac There is coaxil/stablon if you can get it in the USA it's a French comp which produces it it's weak and very good for anxiety. Usually when you are young you take the weakest of drugs because they play with your fresh brain. Old people don't even respond to drugs, so only they are given the potent ones.
I am on a mood stabilizer as well and it seems that with all these new meds all I want to do is sleep and its hard to function which is bad cause I have 3 small children and I have to work and I am afraid that I will fall asleep while driving a big truck
I am on depakote 500mg twice a day and respidal 4mg at night and 50mg of zoloft and so far I havent had any side affects but its only been a week my side affects show up on weeks 3 & 4 so hopefully I dont but fingers are crossed
