Yeah, I've been on Zoloft for the past eight years basically. I don't know what happened. This year has just been awful for me, and for no real reason. I had my depression completely under control, and it just sneaked back up on me.

You may be building up a tolerance to Zoloft since it has been in your system so long. Have you talked to your doctor about raising the dose or switching meds altogether?

Well I was trying to wean off it. My doctor had some concerns with my liver. I was on 100mg last year, and we have slowly weaned me down to 50mg which is what I'm on now. I just don't think it's enough. But I don't know if I can up the dose if my liver isn't functioning at 100%.

Oh no. :(



Definitely tell him/her that you are feeling depressed. They may have alternative treatment plans and if worst comes to worst, there is electric/shock therapy. I've heard it can do wonders for depression.



Also, let your family know how your feeling, that you feel that they would feel relieved if you were dead. They will reinforce what I'm saying and let you know that they love you.




:hugs:

Thank you. I will talk to her. I have an appointment sometime in November. I am just afraid. What if I can't take meds anymore? I don't think I can survive the anxiety/depression.

This didn't work for me, but I tried Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. These two therapies work on rewiring the brain's way of thinking and has done wonders for many.
