Medicate or not?

I'm 23 years old. I had a baby a little over a year ago. After I had my daughter I went through severe postpartum depression. I was prescribed Zoloft.  I took it for 6 months and decided I didn't want to take it anymore because it made me feel out of touch. So I gradually weaned myself off. Fast forward to 2 months later. Anxiety is back and feels like depression is too. Should I start my Zoloft again?

Another option would be to try Thrive.  My mom has had depression issues and since going on this vitamin regimen,  she's doing great. It's a patch and a pill once a day. It's all the vitamins and minerals that help. Worth a shot.

You should get your vitamin d checked. Of its low it causes depression like symptoms.
