Lisa I was tapering off from 20mg to 10 mgs, I was on the 10mg for a few weeks, when I had my visit with my Psychiatrist, he did put me back on Zoloft and said that I had basically tapered off enough, other than I very bad anxiety attack last week, I've done really well with the switch.
I can't recall Lisa the exacts words your doctor used but I think it may have been that it could be too stimulating for me? (does that sound right?)
Anways, I do totally agree with what Lisa said, not every medicine works the same on every person, I was switched from Lexapro to the Brintellix, and it wasn't the right medicine for me, even though I honestly thought it was the first 2 weeks. People have had great success on Brintellix, unfortunately it had the complete opposite affect on me. it left me in a world of depression, that I felt like I couldn't escape from.
So even if one person had a bad experience with the medication, doesn't mean everyone will, my system seems to get stimulated way too easy, so this could have been the reason why I spiraled into the worst depression that I can remember.
I've been on Zoloft now for almost 3 weeks and feel almost human again, I am not in bed all day, I am getting things done, have been able to go out of my house even though I still feel anxious at times, and haven't been comfort eating, so as of now I would have to say I am in a good place, and so thankful that I have had a decrease in my depression, I can't really remember the last time I just broke down and cried in the last few weeks, other than about
my father-but anyone depressed or not would feel heartbreak seeing a person change so drastically.
