I'm at about 7 weeks on 150 mg zoloft and it doesn't seem to be helping. I'm really woried that I'll have to start over with something else, and who knows how long that will take. I've gotten out of depression before with medication but it took a really long time. It's a cruel situation when you have to trust the doctor's decision and it seems to be such an in-exact science. All I know is if I didn't have ativan to take once or twice a day I don't think I would make it - seriously. I know there's no answer any of you can give, nobody can really say "Here's what you should do", if they did they'd just be guessing, which is not much different than what psyciatrists are often doing. Hard to blame them, they just have have to try their best, based on what they think might work.
I just wish I could jump in a time machine or be sedated somehow until this passes. I think that's why a lot of people stay in bed, they want to keep on sleeping until either the depression passes or their life passes, I can understand why someone would feel that way. If I could sleep longer I would, that's about the only break I seem to get from it lately.
