My first two days completely off Zoloft were terrible. Unbearable anxiety, uncontrollable crying, and I felt like I was gonna puke all day. I fessed up and told my husband I was trying to go off the meds and he blew up at me. WHat was I thinking????? This was so not a good time to try this, what with a baby to take care of. I have to be well. And I was just so NOT well without the Zoloft, both mentally and physically.

So here I am, taking my meds again like a good girl. I feel a little better, but still kinda crummy. Guess it'll take a few more days until the levels get stable again.

Sorry about your Zoloft withdrawal. Gee, I didn't know it could have that affect so fast. I know when I was taking Zoloft that if I missed a dose, I got a headache.

Your message came across as hubby being very angry. I hope that was in a loving way. It's hard to tell sometimes with written message. I know how you feel about trying things w/o our meds. I have taken a 'vacation' from my anti-d's for up to a couple of months. That's about as long as I can tolerate the unstable mood. If that's the way I used to be all the time, I feel sorry for my family who had to put up with it.

I'm glad you are enjoying motherhood (at least I think you are, judging by your signature). Babies are the best . . . but it sure can be exhausting and we can never count on getting enough sleep. How's life with a little boy???
