Rare Story

I was one of the rare cases that happened. I was on Zoloft and on day 10 i crashed. When i say crashed, i mean bad. I had severe hallucinations thinking people were after me and stuff. Zoloft gave me way too much energy and i couldn't sleep which is why i think i crashed. Don't get me wrong, the medicine did make me happy like its intended to. Too happy in fact- it was like a eurphoria of happyness. Oh and during the 10 days i was on it, i got crazy ripped. I only worked out twice but they were about 3 hour workouts each. I almost had abs after this. After the workout i wouldn't even be tired. I am 17 and am not very athletic. Like i said, don't be scared off by the medicine, what happened to me was rare. I was in the hospital twice.

Gosh, I can't believe you took it again after that,why did'nt your doc give you something different?

since then...i have found zoloft again, taken it. Power is an addictive thing. What happened...absolutely nothing. I took the amount that put me in the hospital, didn't feel a thing. Went up to 200mg after that which is 8 times what i ever took before, absolutely nothing. My body created an immunity against this drug. This was over a month ago. Can thank my body for creating an immunity or id most likely be back in the psych ward.

spread the word.

It's not as rare as you think. The same thing happened to my son, who should never have been put on that medicine to begin with. He had such a bad reaction that he ended up in a psychiatric hospital. He is a wonderful person with an amazing personality. He is going through the typical transitions that most teenagers go through and recently went off to college (another exciting, but challenging transition). Sometimes I wish the medical field would just leave people alone and help them work through things instead of trying to instantly solve them through scary drugs like Zoloft. <br />

I wish you the best! You sound like a good person.
