I know when I was taking a lower dose of Zoloft, I felt very energetic and it was creeping me out, because it was very new and I couldnt work out what to do with my new found energy that didn't put me in pain. Unfortunately I don't know what to suggest though, as I eventually had a reaction to the med for other reasons and had to be taken off it once dose had been increased.
All AD meds can have a lot of different side effects to them, I think Raniah is right, you need to be a bit more specific if you can about
what you're on if possible, so people can offer you better solutions and experiances.
Hope this is just a temperary thing and just a case of getting used to the meds.
All the best

Sometimes, I feel that I should go and play with the thunder - then I get scared and run away.

hi, jamiee here, meds can take awhile to work, 4 me around 4 weeks into new meds myself, pristiq, was on effexor xr for 4 years. hopefully as others have said it may just be some teething probs. also your body is adjusting to the new meds, sometimes at the beginning the mind is willing but the body isn't. sounds like you are in the early adjustment phase, i wish you well, and thank you for your post. i hope the new meds help. all the best, jamie,37, male.

I am so glad you joined us and perhaps if you provide a bit more information I could advice you better. :)
What medication are you on or perhaps I missed that somewhere? Also each person will respond differently to the meds.
I have tried meds others swear by and for me they were a disaster.
I am glad you are starting to feel better but feeling so wired at night is not a good thing.
I will await your next post.

Thanks for the replies, I've been doing the family thing over Easter and had no computer access. I am on eleva active ingredient sertraline same as zoloft I think. I went back to my doctor and she is going to have my blood genetically mapped to find the right anti d for me. I'm a bit blown away by the possibilities of science now!!! Meantime I've decided to hang on the eleva despite not being able to sleep on it. Thanks everyone.
