Zoloft alternatives

Is there a drug like Zoloft that you can buy over the counter? I need something to help me through a couple of days of tough times. ## Hello Johnny, In regards to actual medicine there really isn't going to be anything that is going to be over the counter that you can pick up. The reason for this is that drugs that are used for anti depressant purposes often have both an addictive nature and side effects that can cause suicidal tendencies. What I can say is that there are some "natural supplements" that claim to have anti-depression benefits. If you are just looking to get through a small window where you don't have a prescription filled this may be the best route for you to try. Here are a couple of supplements that I found that are claimed to help. - Sam-e - Tryptophan...

north carolina doctor who prescribes diazapam

48 year old Raleigh resident looking for a doctor to prescribe me my diazapam. I am being cut off from the clinic I go to. After my doctor retired (in Virginia) went to Monarch because I do not have health insurance. I now go to Cornerstone. I have been taking Diazapam for about 25 years as well as Zoloft. I am aware of the side effects and long term usage of "Benzos". I have a long history of mental health issues and this combination is the best for me. I exercise, meditate, watch my caffeine intake and use to tools taught to me to handle my emotional problems to the best of my ability. I feel angered that because of whatever the issues are that prescribers are not prescribing these types of medications should not be my concern. I have read throughly on the CDC'S website. A...

Zoloft and crying

I have been on 150mg Zoloft for a few years, for anxiety. I haven't had a bad episode of anxiety since I started taking it. But I find that I can't cry. I sometimes tear up slightly, but that's it. Even when my beloved father died, I didn't shed a tear. Has anyone else experienced anything like that? ## Hi Lauribeth, Sorry to hear about your situation. According to NIH, "mood or behavior changes" + "severe mood or mental changes" are both listed as side effects of Zoloft that you should check with your doctor about immediately. They also list "confusion" among a wide variety of other unusual side effects.

Zoloft and trouble staying asleep:

I started on Zoloft 3 weeks ago and I went from cutting a 50mg pill in half to increasing it 25 mg each week. I am now on 100 mg. I was prescribed Zoloft for anxiety. I usually take the pill around 7 pm. The first weeks I was absolutely fine the only thing that is persistent is that I would go to sleep and wake up few times a night. I was wondering if this is permanent ? ## No, it should not be a permanent side effect, but it may take a few weeks for it to go away, once you are on one consistent dosage, for awhile. The FDA does warn that this medication might cause REM Onset Latency as a side effect, which means that it can take longer for you to enter the REM phase of sleep and you may not be in it for as long as normal. That can cause a disrupted sleep patter, for awhile. When I'v...

psychotic episode from zoloft

Hi, was just wondering if anyone has ever had a psychotic episode from going off of zolfoft, I have and it was pure hell. My kids didn't think they would ever see me again. Please if anyone has had anything close to to this, please let me know of your experience Thanks ## Did you doctor say it was caused by going off the Zoloft? A sudden cessation, if you've been taking it for a long period of time, can cause depression and rebound effects, but a complete psychotic break would be very unusual. ## No my doctor didn't tell me that's what it was from, but my shrink did. Also, another friend of mie had the same thing happen. So yes, it's very common with Zoloft ## I as well had a psychotic episode after being prescribed Zoloft. In 1996, I was 22 and I only took it for 2 ...

manufacturer change for zoloft

Is it safe from a foreign country? I'm still a little Leary . ## Hello, Rusti! How are you? If it is available via a U.S. pharmacy, then it has passed the same quality and efficacy standards as all others, regardless of which country it is from. This medication is an SSRI antidepressant which may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I've taken 50mg of sertraline for 24 years. During that time, I would periodically try to get off it. But after about 2 days, I would feel myself go down and resumed taking it. It's been quite a while since I've made this attempt again, so more than a week ago I discontinued sertraline (Lupin Pharma) and I don't feel any different than when I took it. My th...

zoloft

want to know everything there is to know about zoloft good and bad ## 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 taking zoloft for approx. 9 years 100mg daily and it has been very good for me. ## 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 w...

Zoloft anxiety side effect

Two weeks ago my doctor increased my Zoloft dosage from 25 mg to 50 mg and I've had debilitating anxiety for since day three of the increase. The anxiety has lessened a little in the last day but I'm wondering if this is a side effect that's not going to go away. I'm quite scared. ## That can be a normal side effect, as reported by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and weight changes. Side effects usually tend to be transient, as explained by the NIH, and they should go away, once your body gets used to the new dosage, but that may take 4 to 5 weeks. However, if its gets severe, or doesn't go away, you should consult your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hello me to i know how bad it gets, the meds changed me to much and ...

Zoloft, amitriptyline and clonodine addiction?

I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety when I was 16 and started taking Zoloft. within 6 months of treatment I was taking 100mg of Zoloft, and here I am four years later still depending on it each day. Due to the high dosage, it caused me to have very very very bad side affects such as migraines and becoming restless 24/7. They then started me on Amitriptyline to help out balance the side affects and it worked perfectly. I take 25 mg of amitriptyline at night. 3 years after continuously taking the Zoloft and Amitriptyline, my psychiatrist added me onto clonodine at night to help me sleep and it works wonders, but I'm afraid I'm addicted to it, mentally. if I don't take it or accidentally miss taking it at night, I am completely restless at night to the point where I don...
