I have not used Zoloft, but my daughter did and she felt like it saved her life. She felt more energetic, and her description was like the she felt like a new person.
Everyone is different and has a different reaction to medication, so if your doctor feels you need this med, I would give it try and see if it helps YOU. Thats whats most important in my opinion, is how well it works for YOU. Good luck!
