@jakerobillard my neurologist suggested Zoloft to me about 3 weeks ago & I’m so grateful she did! I take the generic Sertraline & it has been great! The 1st week, I took half a 25 mg & week 2 began taking the full 25mg dose. So far, I haven’t had any side effects other than lessened anxiety, better sleep, a mood boost & it’s even helped me stretch my pain meds a little further!
In the past, I tried Lyrica, Cymbalta, Amitriptyline & Lamotrigine. While on Lamotrigine, I had low dose Alprazolam on an as needed dose for spikes in anxiety.
So far, my anxiety still comes but it’s manageable! My doc said it could take a full 4 to 6 weeks to have the full effectiveness. She wanted me to try it to see if it could help calm some nerves down so maybe my vision & balance will recover. I don’t have any changes there yet but I’m hopeful & in the meantime, I’m just grateful it’s helped ease the additional burden of depression! I was in the process of locating a psychiatrist for help.
Sorry for the long post but I wanted to share my experience with you. I realize that we’re all different & I hope if you try it, you will have good results too!
