Mekkie, its seems you my daughter have alot in common.  You both went off at the same time and are still having the same sort of sysmtoms. 
 
Her mood swings are still their, her physical well being is still hard to motivate.  The weight is not coming off and she has been watching what shes eating but not excersing, she says she physically just cn't not motivate herself to do it.
 
Your okay, its normal for some I guess.  She has been doing the vit. B complex.  She still has some of the hot and cold flashes too.  The med very well might not be in your systom, but the brain is craving it or something,  LEts hope Feb, has something in store for you both!!
 
Take care and keep moving forward!  I care about you even thow I don't personally know you!  I see what my daughter gfoes through and I can only sympothize with you both!  I'm sorry for the hell its put you both through!  If the weight gain wassn't bad enough!  Your going to beat it, try some Vit. B if your not already.
 
Take care and Keep in touch!  Your a wonderful person and you will over come this, it just takes more time for some then others I guess.

Nivram...it seems like me and your daughter have to go through some more tough times for a while,im still getting hotflashes and moodswings and im not sure if hillari is having problems with confusion and lack of consintration also sometimes realy light headed cause i am but it comes and goes some days its good and others it just comes up out of know where...and the emotions jee i could cry over spilt milk.
How long was hillari on zoloft for i think for myself that it might have to do with the length of time we have been taking it i was on it just under 3 years.
I started taking the B complex at first i was only taking B6 a high doesage but it was making me dizzy so i thought it was beter to take like you said all the B`s a complex supplement only taking it now for 4 days i still take omega 3 also and i have to say i feel alot healthier i use to suffer from cold sores and i have not had them in a while also headaches and none of them so far,i think omega 3 is a good product...my son is taking it too for about 3 months and his school work has improved.

Nivram its nice to know you care thank you and the same here.

Take Care

Nivram... how is hillari doing these days,im still having difficulties will be going to my doc soon if things keep up like this because i just have no motivation at all to do anything just to many withdrawal effects going on for me.I just still cant understand why its taking so long im so tired of it all just want to at least feel good. it seems to me that in the begin stopping Z it the withdrawal was not so hard as it is now it seems worse now than ever for me it feels like im taking some kind of drug thats making me feel totaly spaced out lack of consintration and distant.

If i`d knowing it was going to be like this i would of never stopped taking it and just put the weight on ....anything is beter than this

Gosh, I'm glad I found you all...I went back to the old thread and noticed no one was posting and thought "This can't be right..." and then today...I found you all!

And just in time as well because I'm not doing so hot. I now weigh the most I have in my life...EVER!!! I turn 36 tomorrow and I'm just about as low as I can possibly be. I'm sorry to be the downer on the thread today...you all sound like you are doing so well and I'm so happy for all of you. I truly am.

I just feel like this big blob of humanity that no one will ever love or be attracted to. I feel like a freak really. And the worst part it...I'm still on the Zoloft and I feel depressed. confused confused

I don't want my OCD to come back but I don't want to be like this either. Does that make any sense? Has anyone felt this way? I'm just having a really, really hard time right now and I guess I'm looking for a little support.

Thanks for listening and I'm sorry if I've ruined anyone's day.

snickersmom you didnt ruine my day...my days have been ruined when on zoloft and off zoloft,im not feeling any beter yet since been Z free 2 months and 1 week to be exact no weight loss also depressed and feel unatractive aswell. Im so sorry to hear your having a difficult time aswell with your weight i wish i could say to you that everything will be ok and you will lose weight and your ocd wont come back IF you stopped with ZOloft BUT I cant ....i mean there are people on here that feel great since stopping and im still waiting for that terrific moment.
If i remember correctly you stopped taking Z for about a year Right?? Did your ocd come back then or was it another reason that you started Z again and did you also after stopping that year lose weight??

I wish i could just click my fingers and take everyones pain away ......i often ask myself why some of us suffer in life and others have good lives in the (health department) i mean.

Mekkie...I switched from Zoloft to another med about a year ago and my OCD came back with a vengance. I almost had to be hospitalized because my anxiety was so great and I was just so hysterical. That's why I'm hesitant to get off the Zoloft. I was on 150 mgs. but I've been on 100 mgs. for about a month. I started on 50 mgs. today. Now, I've done this all on my own in the hopes that I can at least lose some weight...maybe not all but I guess I'm wishing for the best of both worlds. I was only on the other medication for about 6 months and didn't lose any weight.
Now, when I stopped Zoloft before I did lose all the weight I had gained. Then when I was put back on it about a year later for the OCD...the weight came back so I know that it is the medication completely messing up my system but without it, I'm even more of a mess. Does that make any sense?
Thanks for listening though and being supportive. I wish I could help you get to your good day without Zoloft as well.

Jay...I don't have OCD or anxiety right now and I feel really good...better (OCD wise) than I have in a long time. It seems that I have been able to manage the OCD with the help of the Zoloft. I'm depressed today but on the average I don't have depression although I was treated for depression about 12 years ago...my first introduction to Zoloft.
 
I know it does make us stronger and we are going through this for a reason. I just wish it didn't have to be so hard. I would just like to be "normal."
 
Maybe it has something to do with turning 36 tomorrow and the fact that my dad passed away the day after my birthday 7 years ago. I didn't think that it really affected that much anymore but maybe it still does. I don't know...all I know is that I just feel like this freak and I feel ashamed.

eyes  Mekkie, how ya doin hun, hill was on the meds for almost 1 and a half and zoloft for one year.  Yes she complains alot of being spacing and not being able to remember or comprehend what she is to be studing in school.  Its hard for her because she is a straight A student.  Her mood swings are their, she dosen't seem to have the irritabilty that she had when she was on the wellbutrin.  I wish the miles weren't soon many between us.  I feel like I'm driving her crazy because I'm driving myself that way, I try to motivate her and get her to excersise and it alweasy just ends in a big fight and then we both feel awful!!!  She still has the headaches and lot of eye pain, they tell her that it could be just her contacts but it all started during the zoloft period.  Thanks for the omega 3 info, I have often wondered about starting her on that too.  Hugs to you, you both will get their, I have faith, infact I just wished about it last night on a falling star!!!  Your post help better understand what my daughter is going through because others really don't understand becasue they have not been on it or didn't have the side effect withdrawls. 
 
Snickermom, hang in their, you are a beautiful person, you have so much to offer all of us!!  Happy B-Day tomarrow.  I have read about doctors precribeing Topomax for weight loss while taking zoloft.  They also prescribe it for mood swings and bi-polar patients.  It helps with the sugar cravings and appetite control.  Ask you pdoc about it, Hillarie tried it but it made her tired and hard to keep awake during class.  Although they say if you take it long enough that gets better.  It worth asking about, look it up on the web under topomax and weight loss from zoloft. 
 
Hi jaymay, glad to hear things are going well for you, keep it up!!
 
More tomarrow it late, your all in my thoughts everyday.!! yeah yeah yeah tongue tongue tongue I send you hugs from Minnesota, where its cold!!!!!!

Hello Everyone,
I'm usually on a couple of other forums, but happened to stop over here and saw this post. Wow! what responses! So, Zoloft explains my constant hunger, and I thought it was the Flexeril... I believe I will definately gain much weight if I stop exercising regularly. I have already picked up much needed weight, but don't want anymore....

Best wishes and take care everyone..

Many Huggs,
Vanessa

Hi nivram...i have not been online for a few days cause i have it difficult for a few days now with terrible hot flashes and mood swings the hot flashes just see to come up out of know where also my heartbeat is irregular im very down at this moment im feeling very unhappy latly, just cant get myself motivated to do anything i wonder how much longer i have to have this withdrawal its 2 months and 2 weeks for me off Z and im starting to think withdrawal is never going to go....i just dont understand. It all sounds very negative the way i talk now but its just getting to much now and the spacy felling i have in my head is frustrating cause i cant think straight or conscentrate. The most simplest thing as going to the shop takes me alot of effort and energie ...i dont know why its taking longer for me with withdrawal i have read somethings on internet that a woman had withdrawal for 3 months and i HOPE that in febuari i feel beter but its like it will never end so sorry to be so negative again this is one of the reasons i didt post here for a few days as i didnt wanna keep writting the same things over and over about what im STILL going through.

How is Hillari doing?

Hello everyone...everything is okay here. I've been really busy getting ready for a work project so I haven't been able to post as usual.

I am going to talk to my psychiatrist about coming off Zoloft. I have to get some of this weight off!!!! I guess I'm just going to have to tough it out until I can lose some weight and then go back on the minimal dose if necessary. I hate having to choose but I can't be this heavy anymore.

Otherwise things are good. Have a great weekend! :-)

Oh Mekkie, my heart is aching for you, I wish there something i could tell you that would make everything better for you!  I'm not a docotor of course but the symptoms your posting souond like you might be having some anxeity attacks, the heart beat, even the hot flashes your feeling could be contributed to this.  Please don't be down on your self for this, its not your fault!!!!  Have you talked with your doctor lately about what your feeling?  Please don't ever feel like your a downer, you need to talk about how your feeling and thats why we are all on this forum, to help support and get support when we need it!!!  Have you tried a good B complex  to help stabelize your moods?  Your going to get better, keep going forward!  I have read that the mood swings and hot flashes can be contributed to hormone inbalances too, this maybe something to talk to your doctor about!  Please continue to post if your up to it!  I haven't really talked to Hillarie about this lately as I seemed to ask to much I would irritate her.  The last couple days have seemed to be good days, it could be many factors as to why thow.  One day at a time, are you able to carry out the daily routines that you need to or use to?  Take care and keep in touch, talk with someone close to you, you need not to carry this all on your shoulders alone!
 
Good luck sickersmom with going off Zoloft. Did you talk with your pdoc about the topomax, they say it helps with the taking some of the weight off, Hillarie didn't tolerate it very well so we dicontued it.
 
Thinking of you all!!!
