I've been on it, along with a number of other people I know. Hated being on it. Takes too much control of you. Have never met anyone who thought it was good for them.

I don't have a whole lot to complain about being on it. I never really noticed a difference, but I did find out not to take it within 4 hours of Depakote. It has some very odd side effects.

I have been on this for about 3-4 weeks now. I was on Prozac for 15 tears but was having problems again with depression more and he switched me to zoloft 50-75 mg. As needed he said. So far no side affects to say but doing better. Took a leave of absense from work for about 6 weeks. To releave all the stress and what it was doing to me. It seems to be ok so far.

Growing up, my Mom was always depressed. As a child, it was hard to deal w/ my Mom's emotional outbursts. I dealt w/ her depression for 18 yrs before she finally got on Zoloft. For the 1st time, I saw her happy & content w/ herself. She was on it for 2 yrs and now 4 yrs later she is still that happy person. I believe in it for the right people. It helped her emotionally cope w/ things & got her on a new train of thought.

I took zoloft for the first time 2 days ago. I absolutly hated it. I felt like a zombie. I was not my self and I didn't feel happy. I was less talkative, shakey, nervous, my reactions to things were very slow.
I think I am done with the medication alternative.

I have been on it for 3 weeks now and I have seen a total change. My face is clearing up form acne, my weight is going back down (from lack of cortisol- a stress hormone that causes weight gain), I feel better about myself and I am no longer having panic attacks. Its a wonderful drug for me and I am only taking 50mg. I am a lot happier now and I can finally handle my stress levels better.

I started on Effexor and it made me a zombie and cry
so Dr. changed me to Zoloft the end of last year and I can think better at work and situations dont bother me now-I wasnt depressed but Dr. said I had so much going on that my brain was releasing something and this would help-I cant even tell I'm on it (50 mg) and I feel great! I'm actually interested in projects again!

I've been on Zoloft for approx. 8 months now. I was actually trying to figure out who felt the same way I do when a dose is missed. It's hard to describe, but it kinda feels like my body jolts on the inside. My fiance says he can't see it when it happens, but it sure feels like he should. I feel it in my hands, my head, and my face. I really can't describe it any better. I do feel better when I do take it, matter fact, I can't even tell I took it. It's only that missed dose.

Kathy Says:

I have been taking Zoloft for eight years and I have reduced the dosage and when things would get bad again I will just up the dose. It has been great for me. I can control my anxiety and handle stress a whole lot better. I guess I will be on it the rest of my life. I have tried going off of it but after awhile the anxiety starts back and I can't live with that, so back on the Zoloft. The only thing I am having a problem with is weight and that gets to me. Its not for everyone, my sister could not take it,but my other sister could.

is it possible to get high off of zoloft or to buy or sell it on the streets, im worried about my son

Verwon Says:

No, it doesn't cause a high or euphoric effect, as to buying or selling it on the streets, well you can do that with just about anything, though I don't know why anyone would want this. It is an antidepressant, so it doesn't do anything that regular street drugs are popular for doing.
