Hello, I am new to this forum. I have been reading alot from here the past few days. I do have a question...... first of all, I have been over whelmed with alot lately and on top of this depressed. I can get angry at the slightest things and feel like I am going to kill ( figure of speech, of course). I decided to go get checked because I felt that I was in need of something. To my surprise, she asked me what was wrong and then placed me on lexapro. There was no fancy test to take, nothing...... I took lexapro for 3 weeks and was tired all the time, no matter what time of day I took it. She then took me off that and put me on effexor xr, that gave me bad bad headaches and I couldn't take it no more. She then put me on zoloft. 25 mg for 4 days then 50 mg after for a month, then I have to make an appointment to see her and see how this is going.
My question is: I put on alot of weight from depression, I have read that zoloft makes you gain weight. Is this try?
It has been a guessing game from the begining with these meds. Don't you think I should of had some kind of testing?
