Thanks for all your suggestions, most helpfull.
Karen, I will chat to my Dr about
the other meds you suggestion, thanks for that. Also, unless I have developed muscle in my lower tummy, which looks like I am about
6mths pregnant at the moment , I don't think it's the working out that is making my weight increase!!!!! It's really awfull, I can't even get clothes to fit anymore. My hips, thighs & bottom are all in proportion, and then I've got this big tummy sticking out
My very helpful husband did suggest I buy maternity pants (seriously!!)
but I think I would feel better and my self esteem would also be better if I was able to loose some of the weight I have put on. So maybe another med wolluld suit better.
Can anyone tell me if Zoloft is a mood stablilizer?? I seem to have so much patience and all the little things that really got on my nerves before don't seem to bother me anymore. I really don't know if I have depression or just severe mood swings. My GP isn't very helpfull in this department and seems to be just a bit of a pill pusher, but he's great for all other things, I have been seeing him since I was a kid and don't really want to change. Just to give you a bit of background to my condition: I am 45 female, suffered with post natal depression with my first child 20 years ago, had a bout of depression about
8 years ago when our business fell apart, was on a mild anti depressant for that and then 2 years ago my husband had a relationship with a woman at work that I knew nothing about
untill her husband rang me one night and filled me in on all the gorry details!! I really lost it then - I thought I had the perfect marriage and husband (same old story, I know!!!) But to cut a very long story short, my husband & I had a lot of marriage counselling, I was put on Zoloft just to survive and get out of bed in the morning and now 3 years later, feel that we are finally in the place we want to be, we are happy and our marriage is very different to what it was before. Hence the reason for me now to try and ween off the Zoloft because of the unwanted side effects. I did have severe mood swings before all this happened, and this is another reason why I have stayed on the Zoloft - I don't think I have depression any more, but want something to control the moods. Any advice??
