Don't take it unless you do research on it and talk in depth with a qualified doctor about it. I took it years ago to help quit smoking, it worked. I was on it about six months. Years later, it was prescribed for depression and anxiety. I took a relative small dose, but this time over a much longer period of time. I am now looking at being on it from here on out, increasing dosage every year or two. The very short term use you could possible get benifit from it. But the side effects and withdrawl symptoms are horrible (over a two year course of trying I could not get over them) if you take it very long and it seems to vary with each person as to how long it takes to become addicted to it.
for 2 weeks
i stopped taking it i was having problems , falling asleep while driving , working ...not good
I took it for a week, had serious side effects, mainly hallucinations ... So I switched ...
I took Zoloft for anxiety and depression. I had horrible problems with it; severe stomach distress, and G.I. Bleeding. I'm told that it doesn't happen with most people though.
I didn't have highs or lows. I sort of buzzed along on an even level. I didn't like it. But yes, it worked on my specific problems.
I stopped taking it. I felt like a zombi, and like I said, the side effects were awful. I'm taking something different now, and it's great.
Years ago... I took it for depression.
Yes, I divorced my husband. lol
Horrible. I hated Zoloft. It made me like a Zombie and made me feel more suicidal than I was. It was only helping my OCD by making me sleep all day. I got up to 150mg of it and they wanted to put me at the max of 200mg but I just stopped taking it, I know you're not supposed to but it didn't help me and I'm glad I did. Now I'm on Celexa and Klonopin.
