What dose are you on now with the Zoloft Bearfan?

I started 75mg on July 1st. Gonna start 100mg on the 8th. Yeah, feeling really terrible. Sucks. Brain zaps weren't too bad and aren't noticeable now. But man, everything else is bad. Can tell I'm still in withdrawal mode because of these awful vivid dreams and nightmares I'm getting. Sometimes I wake up and can't remember if something was real or not.

I remember, and your thinking is obsessive about nearly everything including your health. The good news is that you are getting to the dose that should really start helping soon. Time and patience.

Yeah, really struggling right now. Anxiety, headaches, diarrhea, not feeling myself. Thanks for the support and I know it can take some people months to feel back to normal.  I've only been off cymbalta 24 days. Hopefully this improves soon because I'm at an all-time low.

On Day 4 of 100mg Zoloft. Feel the best I have in a while. Depression has faded, my mood has become more optimistic and energized, my sleep is more regular, and this if the first day my OCD rumination isn't bad. Seeing progress finally! Just happy so I had to post.

    5 months on cymbalta, scary side effects, never felt good.
    Needed understanding and support, and a place where I was not alone. To read others stories and realizing that I was not the only one going through all that crap.
    In hope that one day, I can return the favors in some kind of way.

Hi Bearfan,

How good to hear, you must be jumping all around! Relief at last. Just don't overdo things.
Zoloft was fast. Thank you for the positive update!

That is great Bearfan. That is not a high dose for the Zoloft so if you can stabilize at that level it would be great.

That was about 3 months faster than my recovery with Zoloft. lol

Actually, let's just call that a little victory lol. It was my first few hours where I felt good again. Last night went back to how I was doing before - awful OCD/anxiety and just feeling weird, diarrhea, racing thoughts, etc. 

 

Sad to say today is the same so far. But I will take those few hours of clarity as a good thing. Probably will give this 100mg another 8 weeks to watch for improvement and then see if I will go to 150mg.

 

Lol. Sorry to spoil everyone. I was just so overjoyed that I had to update, buuuutttt now I feel crappy again :(

 

Ah well, takes more time I guess.

It will improve more with time, as you said. Hang in there. We are still happy for those few short hours of relief.

Hello Bkc,

Where are you at with the withdrawal? Lost again, I am. Sorry!
