jlr, welcome & hi. I don't take Zoloft but I do take Citalapram for depression, it does help me to live with my illness. I hope you get the full benefit from the Zoloft & find some relief soon. As far as CFS, I don't really take anything for it, I do take Trazadone & Tizanadine for my sleep issues. I find without sleeping well I crash more & harder but taking these do not guarantee I will wake up refreshed. They do help me about 75% of the time & I wake up feeling good enough to get out of bed & do a few things around the house or just sit on the couch & play on the computer.
Some people have tried Adderall & it has helped them, I have never tried it but have thought about it. Pacing, as you have found, helps a lot, it can keep us from crashing all of the time.
I hope you have another "stay of illness" & can get back to your life, some do seem to recover but for most of us it is long term illness. I try to enjoy each day within the energy envelope I have going at the time. Some days I just watch tv with my family until I am ready to sleep & am happy with that.
Take care & I hope you find something to help you, keep us posted. Hugs, Denise
