This med is like all of the antidepressants, you either love it or hate it but I have read many successful stories. Remember most people will talk about the meds that did not work for them but rarely join a forum when they are feeling well and their meds are working.
Somtimes it takes trial and error. Look for the positive stories.
Here is a link to a thread on Zoloft:
I wish you peace,
